What we're about

The five most stressful events in life are said to be death, divorce, moving, major illness or injury, and job loss. Add "isolation" to the mix and any one of these disruptions can become overwhelming. But Newcomers & Friends offers a ray of hope to women in Fort Wayne.

We understand that life changes. Whether it's the demands of spearheading the relocation of your household, the realignment of your life as a single woman after a relationship has ended, or your movement into a new life stage, we've been there. We recognize that change is tough, and it gets even tougher when you have to go through it without a strong local support system. Our organization's mission, therefore, is to bring women together to promote friendship and camaraderie — to be a ready-made sisterhood, if you will.

Newcomers Club of Fort Wayne is a multi-generational non-profit social club that provides opportunities for women to find companionship while discovering our city and community. We welcome you to join us for our next activity or adventure!

You can read more about us here: http://fwnewcomers.com/. As an organized club, we have real expenses like insurance, website fees, etc. There is no charge for attending the coffee and we encourage all first timers (Meetup members included) to try out 2-3 of our events before committing to join Fort Wayne Newcomers at a cost of $25/year.

Welcome Coffee

Sweetwater Sound

We have a morning coffee on the first Wednesday of every month. It's just a time for us women to get together and chat about nothing in particular. It is also the perfect occasion for us to invite and welcome new friends to the group. It is typically the first event or activity a person attends when getting involved with Newcomers Club. Come try us out!
