Good evening RPXander,

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!

I understand you want to share iCloud storage with your family. Do you already have Family Sharing set up for the iTunes Store? The resources below will explain how to set up Family Sharing and how to share an iCloud storage plan.

Share an iCloud storage plan with your family

To share your storage plan, you need iOS 11 or macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

For the best experience, have your family members update their devices too. However, you can share a storage plan with family members that are using an older operating system.

If necessary, upgrade to a 200GB or 2TB storage plan.

Enjoy the rest of your evening!
