The Foley Center coordinates the service work of Spring Hill College students through our partnerships with local nonprofit organizations to provide thousands of hours of service each year. Students work with healthcare providers, special needs organizations, elderly care facilities, education programs for both children and adults and many other programs that provide for the needs of the under served and marginalized in the Mobile community.
One-on-one community service sustained over a semester or a year fosters transformative relationships between our students and the community. The Foley Center is thus a key way that Spring Hill College fulfills its promise to form our students into leaders in learning, faith, justice and service for life.
Our goals are rooted in the Spring Hill College mission to form students to become responsible leaders in service to others. This mission is grounded in our Catholic tradition that teaches that justice and peace are not the responsibility of a few organizations, but the shared commitment of the global community to human dignity.
Person-to-person community service sustained over a semester or a year fosters transformative and reciprocal relationships between our students and the community. The Foley Center encourages students to build a sense of solidarity with the communities they serve and to instill a sense of agency that will embolden them to become leaders for change.
