Survivor Emergency Funds

SASSL Survivor Support Emergency Request Funds

SASSL provides limited financial support to survivors in immediate need. These funds can go directly towards things like emergency housing, food, childcare, or counselling costs. You do not need to be a student to access funds. In order to do so, a brief request form needs to filled out. Staff/ volunteer support is available while filling out the form if required. Generally, you can include as much detail as you feel comfortable sharing. For the time being, survivor’s can access funds once every two years. This a policy we are currently reviewing because we recognize that some people may need to access this resource more than once within a two year period. A maximum of $350 is available through this fund. Print copies are available at our office (B449 York University Student Centre) or digitally below. Once approved, you can usually pick-up a cheque within 48 hours. We can also arrange to have it mailed to you directly if needed. To speak with someone directly about the funds, you can contact us:
