Who we are:

New Friends is a Christian-based friendship network connecting young adults in high school and college with families of children with special needs. This program is part of Jesus Cares Ministries (JCM) which is a national outreach ministry to people with developmental disabilities, their families and communities.  


The students at Manitowoc Lutheran High School play an active role in planning and carrying out the outreach for New Friends in the Manitowoc area and surrounding communities (including this student run website).


Our Purpose:

Its purpose is to build relationships by focusing on our abilities, not our disabilities, while creating a fun-filled atmosphere where the entire family feels safe, relaxed and happy!
