My name is Hannah Weide and I am excited to be a part of New Friends. I have met many outstanding people who overcome many challenges to live incredible lives. One of those individuals is my close friend who has Down Syndrome. We have shared many great memories of going to restaurants together, walking in parks, and watching movies. Like many other people I have met with special needs she has shown me how capable she is working at a job, maintaining friendships, and much more. New Friends is important to me because we have the opportunity to serve amazing people.
