    Established in 1984, the Vietnamese Community of Arizona formed with the mission to provide and serve Vietnamese-Americans in Arizona. As the community grew, the mission began to expand in adaptation to the continually changing time. The mission of the Vietnamese Community of Arizona is to preserve the culture and tradition of Vietnam, provide assistance to Vietnamese-Americans, integrate the Vietnamese culture with other communities and sustain the roots of the Vietnamese people through the next generation.

    In 1975-1976, the number of Vietnamese refugees in Phoenix, Arizona was less than a thousand. Although scattered in the large city, the culturally shocked Vietnamese Americans found refuge amongst each other as they experienced an unfamiliar way of life. In the following years, due to the desire of unity and preservation of the culture and tradition of Vietnam, some of the first Vietnamese refugee organizations in Arizona were established: Vietnamese Friendship Association, Catholic Association, Buddhist Association, Vietnam Veteran’s Association, and the Vietnamese Student Association. In 1984, as the need to unite and effectively serve the community became apparent, especially in search of a way to support the Vietnamese people who are still struggling to oppose communism in the homeland, the five leaders of the above-mentioned associations came together to establish the Vietnamese Community of Arizona. For more than 30 years, the population of Vietnamese-Americans in Arizona grew to greater than 20,000 people. Due to this exponential growth, the Vietnamese Community of Arizona continued to strengthen internally and externally. Currently, the organization consists of a Board of Director, Executive Board, and more than 20 Vietnamese organizations. Some activities of the Vietnamese Community of Arizona included, but not limited to:

    • Lunar New Year celebration
    • Mid-Autumn celebration
    • Vietnamese national holiday
    • The Twin Sisters Memorial
    • Hung Vuong Ceremony
    • The Vietnamese Memorial in downtown Phoenix,
    • Assistance to new Vietnamese-Americans
    • Raising funds to aid in natural disasters

    As the number of Vietnamese-Americans in Arizona continues to grow, the demand for support and the desire to sustain the Vietnamese Community of Arizona becomes more apparent. A nation can only persevere as long as the faith and loyalty of her people survive.
