Help for Life's Unexpected Emergencies

It’s more important than ever to support our hardworking employees. If you are in a position to do so, please consider donating to Austin Community College’s Employee Emergency Fund, which supports grants and loans to assist ACC employees when needed. The fund was created in partnerships by ACC's employee associations to provide immediate financial assistance to employees experiencing an unexpected hardship.
