Can You Walk in ALICE's Shoes?
Connecticut United Ways are committed to standing with ALICE households that, despite working hard, live paycheck to paycheck and experience financial hardship.
ALICE (an acronym that stands for
mployed) households are forced to make difficult financial choices every day. Working parents choose between quality child care and healthy food for their children. Young adults juggling multiple jobs with inconsistent schedules choose between expensive rent and a long commute to work. Aging adults weigh whether to ignore a car repair or keep their homes warmer.
The most recent
Connecticut United Ways ALICE Report
revealed that 30% of Connecticut households are ALICE. In an effort to illuminate the hard choices faced by ALICE, Connecticut United Ways challenge you to walk in ALICE's shoes. Click
