The Student, Staff, and Faculty Emergency (SSAFE) Fund is there for the UAH family in times of need. It’s a lifeline during unforeseen, critical, or emergent situations that affect our mental, emotional, and financial well-being.

Since Delois and Edward Smith established the SSAFE Fund in 2003, the fund has and continues to assist UAH students, staff, and faculty with utilities, insurance, car payments, medical bills, and other emergency expenses when faced with difficult circumstances. It is a confidential and powerful solution to unpredictable and personal situations.

The SSAFE fund embodies our UAH family’s strong sense of compassion and steadfast commitment to one another’s well-being. Thanks to you, our UAH Family is in SSAFE hands.

Please consider making a gift of any level that is meaningful to you by visiting this giving page. Your gift today will support someone in times of need tomorrow.
