United We Learn Session- November 13, 2020

Meet ALICE: A new way of defining the struggles of working households

Recorded on Friday November 13th, 2020 at 9:15 a.m.

ALICE, an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, are households that earn above the Federal Poverty Level, but not enough to afford a bare-bones household budget. Tune in to learn more about ALICE families and how the future success of our community is directly tied to the financial stability of these fragile ALICE households.

After you watch today’s session and view the full ALICE report, please fill out the survey below to help us shape the next steps.

Listen to one local story about an ALICE family from our 2020 ALICE report press conference.

United We Learn is a new opportunity to learn more about United Way and our work in the community. These virtual learning sessions are offered and hosted by United Way of Central Illinois. Each session will only last for fifteen minutes and will be recorded so they can be viewed at a later time.
