Events at Vinfen

Events at Vinfen embody our values and mission of transforming lives together. Each event has a unique purpose or initiative where our staff, the people we serve and their families, community partners, and supporters are celebrated, essential funds are raised, and platforms are established to increase awareness and resources to better serve our community.

Vinfen hosts a suite of events on an annual basis. Vinfen’s Celebration of Family Partnerships honors the incredible people we serve and their family members within the Vinfen community. Our Moving Images Film Festival uses the power of film to host a free, community-building event that raises awareness, fosters important dialogue, and fights against the prejudices and discrimination often faced by the people we serve as well as the mental health and disability communities. Vinfen’s Run-4-Life serves as an annual fundraiser where donations support the health and well-being of the people we serve. And Vinfen’s Innovative Technology in Behavioral Health Conference creates an educational platform where technological advancements and the integration of digital technology with mental health are celebrated.
