1 and 2 households are sturggling

ALICE [Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed] households work hard but struggle to afford basic needs. ALICE is our neighbor, friend, and family member. ALICE prepares our coffee, takes care of our loved ones, and serves our meals. ALICE lives paycheck to paycheck, unable to save, and one unexpected financial need away from poverty themselves.  Fix the car or put food on the table? Visit the doctor or pay for child care?  For too many hardworking households, impossible decisions like these are a way of life. When ALICE and those in poverty are forced to make difficult choices, the entire community faces consequences because the success of our region is directly tied to the financial stability of the most vulnerable among us.



Our Region - 504,873 Households
