WHO is ALICE?
Many hardworking residents in our community work more than one job to maintain their households but still find it difficult to make ends meet. These households are ALICE –Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed – earning above the Federal Poverty Level yet struggling to afford basic expenses.
WE are ALICE!
We are all connected to ALICE. ALICE may be a family member, friend, colleague, or neighbor, or you might be ALICE. ALICE may also be your health care provider, childcare teacher, mechanic, store clerk, office assistant, or other support staff who represent the backbone of our community.
JOIN the ALICE movement!
The success of our community is directly related to the financial stability of our community members. When ALICE is forced to make difficult choices, whether to pay their rent or utility bills or buy food or their prescriptions, the entire community faces consequences. When ALICE workers cannot afford an emergency, let alone invest in their neighborhood, communities experience instability, higher taxes, or decline in economic growth.
Together let’s place ALICE at the center of community conversations on critical issues. Let’s forge new relationships with community partners, educators, corporations, and government officials to identify opportunities and build strategies that support ALICE.
Together let’s be the change that will improve the lives of ALICE and strengthen our community!
