Meet ALICE

   Meet ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) 

A growing number of individuals and families work but cannot afford basic necessities. These families are struggling - earning too little to make ends meet, but sometimes too much to qualify for support. By comparing real incomes with real expenses, the United Way ALICE Project reveals the stark reality that income falls short of basic needs for at least one-third of households in most states.

This work provided a very real glimpse of the devastating impact that daily struggle has on an ALICE household. And when we shine a light on this unrecognized group, we also see that the instability of such a huge proportion of workers is destabilizing our local economies, our communities and our lives.

Targeted solutions to address the shocking mismatch between a family's income and the real-time cost of living in each county in a state can be developed, monitored, and measured for impact.

Wisconsin's United Ways are using the ALICE report to educate, engage the the community in developing strategies to life ALICE to financial stability and begin a dialogue about strategies for long-term systemic change.

EDUCATIONAL SUCCESS - CRADLE TO CAREER INITIATIVE (C2C)

In 2013, the Tri-City Area United Way held a series of “Community Conversations”. We talked with 29 different groups of area citizens: high school at risk youth, high school leadership and student councils, civic groups, jail inmates, business leaders and employees. We talked with elected officials, emergency responders, social services and more. You raised 16 primary concerns with substance abuse, educational opportunities and parenting education standing out as the top three. These three concerns formed the basis for the beginning of our Educational Success - Cradle to Career Initiative.
