It’s easy to be blind to someone’s financial struggle. You grab a cup of coffee at the local café or bakery and don’t know the barista is a college student or single mom holding down two jobs to make ends meet. ALICE families are our neighbors, friends and family members.
The updated United Way ALICE Report is providing a holistic snapshot of financial insecurity at the state, county and municipal level. The population identified in the report as ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) are hardworking members of the community who are employed, yet can’t keep up with the rising cost of living.
ALICE families earn above the Federal Poverty Level, yet struggle to cover basic needs, including: housing, child care, food, transportation, health care, and necessary technology. Traditional measures of poverty do not capture the magnitude of people who are struggling financially – and that’s where the ALICE Report steps in.
