Foundation Communities (FC) is a local, homegrown nonprofit. Founded in 1990, we provide affordable, attractive homes and free on-site support services for thousands of families, veterans, seniors, and individuals with disabilities. We offer an innovative, proven model that empowers our residents and neighbors to achieve educational success, financial stability, and healthier lifestyles. We own and operate 25 communities all over Austin and in North Texas.
Free Minds is a program of FC’s College Hub. The mission of the College Hub—Austin’s first college support center for low-income, nontraditional students—is to empower those who face barriers to higher education so that all students in Central Texas have the tools to realize their goals, from application to graduation.
In Free Minds, students take a two-semester course in the humanities taught by professors from Austin Community College and the University of Texas. As an affiliate of the Clemente Course in Humanities, a national education organization, Free Minds harnesses the power of the humanities to help motivated adults overcome social and economic limitations and connect with institutions of higher education.
We are currently providing all programming remotely due to the pandemic. Free Minds will transition to in-person programming gradually as pandemic conditions improve, in alignment with partners and local public health guidelines.
The Free Minds Community Liaison will take the lead on student recruitment and creating and building community relationships. He/she will coordinate our community writing workshops, as well as provide administrative and communication assistance to the Free Minds staff.
