You’re invited to a summit on the newly released 2018 ALICE Report presented by our Women United affinity group on Monday, April 8th at 8:30AM at the State College of Florida.
43% of households in our region struggle to pay for basic needs such as housing, child care, food, transportation, health care and technology. We call this population ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed).
These households earn above the poverty line but not enough to cover the most basic of needs like food and housing. Increases in everything from child care to health care continue to plague a family’s ability to save or prepare for unexpected financial setbacks, even when working a 40-hour-a-week job.
The ALICE Report is important because it helps create a shared understanding of the economic challenges across the nonprofit, government and business communities and inspires us all to work on issues that are holding people in our communities back. The ALICE Report shows us that, although economic recovery is happening in our community, it’s not happening equally for everyone.
