The motivation behind our work is the belief that it is the right of every individual to ask for help, and to have it granted by compassionate, knowledgeable people. Help finding a job, help learning to parent, help paying the rent, help overcoming substance abuse, help leaving an abusive relationship, help with childcare, help succeeding in school. We believe these services, and scores of others, should be available to anyone who needs and desires them.

This mission is what drives us to ask those we know, and those we don’t to join us.

Did You Know About ALICE?

aliceheaderreg

ALICE, a United Way acronym which stands for Limited, Income Income Constrained, Employed, represents the growing number of individuals and families who are working, but are unable to afford the basic necessities of housing, food, child care, health care, and transportation.

Through a series of new, standardized measurements, United Way is quantifying the size of the workforce in each state that is struggling financially, and the reasons why. These measurements provide a broader picture of financial insecurity than traditional federal poverty guidelines.
