CREATORS OF HEARTS FOR SIBLINGS:

Rachel Lee & Chloe Chong

"Our mission is simple — to create a safe environment to empower siblings."

Did you know that siblings of those with disabilities often feel:

  • Like they can not express their feelings

  • Isolated

  • That they are forced to grow up quicker

  • Have a different idea of family and home
