Helping Families In Our Own Backyard
Our Mission is to demonstrate God’s love in action by providing or facilitating access to services that empower and equip the underserved in our community through education, community engagement and other essential services.
Our Vision is a loving and inclusive community where all belong and have equal opportunities for social, spiritual, educational, and economic success.
On Saturday, July 17th, the Town of Vienna celebrated its Multicultural Festival–the culmination of the month-long Liberty Amendments celebration.
It was a unique event celebrating diversity and multiculturalism in Vienna. Belong! took part in the festivities by setting up a booth which encouraged conversations and fostered community by sponsoring an Escape Room where children got a chance to participate and learn how women got the right to vote. We also had a chance to announce the winners of our essay contest to the public in the Town Green. It was a wonderful event that brought our community together!
Juneteenth Celebration at First Baptist Church of Vienna
On June 19th, Belong! had the honor of participating in the Juneteenth Celebration organized by First Baptist Church of Vienna. The celebration commemorated the end of slavery and kicked off the Town of Vienna Liberty Amendments month. Through this event Belong! was able to promote its mission, celebrate an important holiday, and meet new friends!
Celebration Our Children’s Accomplishments
In May, we celebrated the end of our After-School program for this exceptional school year. It brought students, parents, and tutors together to recognize our children’s successes by playing games, enjoying arts and crafts, and sharing cupcakes. It was a great opportunity to build community and strengthen relationships!
We are grateful to Cakes4Kids for providing the cupcakes and making our afternoon a little sweeter!
