More than 1 in 3 households in Western Connecticut are ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) and struggle to pay for basic necessities, including housing, food, child care, health care, and transportation.
We all know ALICE. They care for our children in childcare centers and schools, they work in health care with our aging parents, they provide services in retail stores and restaurants.
Most importantly, ALICE is our neighbor and our friend. They make many sacrifices to keep our families and our communities running.
This GivingTuesday, kick off the holiday giving season by joining us to say #ThankYouALICE. With your support, United Way can keep creating and introducing innovative programs to help ALICE prosper.
