Our Story

Formally founded in 2021, AHUSS co-founders have been supporting its mission for years. We provide direct aid as well as act as a conduit for the movement of resources from those having them to those needing them most. We envision a way to provide easier access to food, over-the-counter medication, personal hygiene products and student supplies for our neighbors without stable resources.
