About Us

Downers Grove Area Newcomers is a non-profit women’s organization that has served the area for more than 50 years. Why Newcomers? We offer lots of opportunities to get involved through Newcomers via social events and community outreach with local charities. This can include participation in one of our regular monthly activities or other special events, volunteering to lead or serve on a committee, or helping the community through one of our fundraisers. Who are the Newcomers? We are a fun group of overĀ 200 women living in Downers Grove and the surrounding area. Members are new and longtime residents, professional women, stay at home/work at home moms, single & married women. We enjoy the opportunity to meet and get to know other women in the area through social activities and fundraising events for local charitable organizations. Members reside in Downers Grove, Lombard, Woodridge, Oak Brook, Darien, Westmont, Lisle, and Clarendon Hills.
