Cry of the Children, Incorporated was founded in 1995 in Bloomington, Indiana. It was created in an effort to help children and teens on their journey of being able to participate in a positive activity and to be accepted in their school environment.

Bethel A.M.E Church is located in downtown Bloomington, right down the street from the Indiana University campus, positioning us perfectly to minister to the needs of both town and gown communities. Our congregation is a diverse group of Bloomington families, professionals, university faculty, staff, and students.

The goal of Cutters Soccer Club is to create an environment where every soccer player, recreational or competitive, may develop a passion for the game while fulfilling their potential as soccer players and young people.

The Outreach Program allows us to partner with other non-profits and schools throughout the community to provide free soccer opportunities.

VAI oversees the Hoosier to Hoosier Community Partnership where items left in the dorms of Indiana University are distributed to local non-profits. Our goal is to keep these gently loved items out of the landfill and into the hands of people in need.  


The Monroe County Fairgrounds is host to many exciting events. With easy access to Highways 45, 48, 37 and I-69, a wide variety of buildings, campgrounds, and vast grassy areas, the fairgrounds makes a fantastic location for banquets, parties, small gatherings, family reunions, trade shows, conventions, and musical or theatrical performances.  

Parking is never a concern for most events and additional parking for larger events is an additional option.
