Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. ALICE. ALICE is every family that works hard, watches their expenses, and still can't get ahead. Because life has gotten more expensive while wages have stayed the same, ALICE is always one or two minor events away from catastrophe.
For ALICE, there is a short distance between a blown tire and homelessness or an unexpected injury and bankruptcy. And, because community resources are so hard to obtain for those with income, those catastrophes quickly become permanent. ALICE represents nearly 30% of your neighbors, friends and family. ALICE needs your help.
To get a feel for the daily battles of an ALICE family, take a few minutes to complete the Making Ends Meet exercise below.
