Eva's Heroes Offers Free Program for Brothers and Sisters of Siblings with Special Needs

Eva’s Heroes is encouraging brothers and sisters, who are 18 and older and who have a sibling with special needs, to register now for the organization’s free SA Sibs program that begins Aug. 19 with a meet-and-greet at Paramour.

SA Sibs offers monthly sessions that include discussion activities, social outings, games and opportunities to make new friends. To register, visit www.evasheroes.org and look for SA Sibs under the Programs section or call (210) 694-9090.

The program will be led by facilitators Jessica Barrera, Rena Sehlke and Anissa Castañeda-Kirby, who grew up with a sibling with special needs. “I wish there had been a program like SA Sibs when I was growing up,” she said. “This is a great opportunity to meet others who have a sibling with special needs.”
