ALICE stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.
The ALICE Project began as a pilot program in New Jersey and has expanded to include seventeen states, which represents nearly 40% of the US population. United Ways across the country have embraced the model because it is a more comprehensive analysis of the state of financial instability in our communities.
We understand that there are people who barely scrape by living from paycheck to paycheck, prioritizing which bills get paid each month and which do not, and hoping that they do not have that one unexpected emergency that throws them into financial crisis. Many of us work for these families and individuals but never really knew the extent of just how many “working poor” there are.
Thanks to ALICE we have a better picture of ALICE in Ozaukee County.
