ALICE is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed and in other words are families with income above the Federal Poverty Level but not high enough to afford basic household necessities. ALICE lives day by day and cannot save for unexpected events. Unplanned events such as car repairs or a medical emergency can be catastrophic to ALICE.
ALICE is everywhere! You, a family member, friend or neighbor might be ALICE. ALICE helps our economy and the health of our communities and when ALICE can't make ends meet, we are all impacted.
We ask that you join the Pennsylvania network of United Way's to raise awareness of the challenges ALICE faces and support the polices that move ALICE closer to financial stability.
