Employee Emergency Assistance allows a portion of the funds collected by the UAB Benevolent Fund Campaign to remain here helping UAB employees who need financial assistance due to a crisis situation in their lives.

The program objective is to provide UAB, Callahan Eye Hospital, Viva, Health Services Foundation and Health System employees with confidential financial assistance during times of verifiable emergency situations.

To apply for emergency assistance or for more information, contact the Benevolent Fund Office at 205-996-2040 or
