A family of four with an infant and a preschooler needs to annually make $88,000 to live comfortably. Two out of every five families in our Suncoast region don’t earn enough to address their basic household budget needs. As the statistics from the 2023 ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Report roll in, we recognize that more people find themselves living paycheck to paycheck and working hard to keep their heads over water. But we also recognize the best way to help involves marshaling our resources and uniting the community behind a collective effort. That’s what we’ve done at United Way Suncoast since 1924 and that’s what we do today. Visit http://www.unitedforalice.org/florida to learn more about the report, and keep and eye out for media accounts detailing the specifics about ALICE families in our region.

The 2023 ALICE Report revealed that a family of four with an infant and a preschooler needs $88,000 to live comfortably. Don’t let the word “comfortably” deceive you. Comfortably means being able to go to the doctor without feeling anxious about the cost. Comfortably means being able to contribute towards your retirement and buy groceries. It’s not luxury, it’s stability. At United Way Suncoast we partner with families and work together to help them reach that stability, but we can’t do it alone. Give today and help United Way Suncoast create a community that will give every family the freedom to rise.
