Holy Family students and staff volunteer in the community


As a Catholic University that intentionally incorporates its Values into all curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular programs, members of the Holy Family University community are deeply focused on upholding the motto teneor votis (“I am bound by my responsibilities”). Service is a part of our daily lives at Holy Family, with opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to volunteer for service projects large and small on behalf of the surrounding communities to make a positive impact on the world around us.
