ALICE

For many, a small emergency can quickly become a major financial crisis.

ALICE is a United Way acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. “Employed” is the critical word.

 

 

ALICE represents those who work hard and are above the poverty line, but due to high costs and factors often beyond their control, must live paycheck to paycheck. For many, a small emergency can quickly become a major financial crisis. Car repairs and health-care emergencies, to name just a few, can plunge these working families over the edge into poverty and financial chaos. When this happens, families, employers, and our economy suffer.
