COVID-19 Hits ALICE Families Hard

United Way of Northern New Jersey has created the ALICE Recovery Fund (#ALICErecovery), a crisis recovery fund that will address emerging needs of ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households and those in poverty in response to the spread of COVID-19.

The state of emergency created by the spread of the coronavirus is exposing critical shortcomings in our economy, health care system, and public education. No one is immune to its direct or indirect effects, but ALICE families are particularly vulnerable to hardship from both illness and economic disruption. These households struggled to afford the basics even before COVID-19 hit.

Across our five-county northern New Jersey region, 30 percent of households are ALICE and in poverty and United Way expects more will become ALICE as this crisis persists.

How you can help

Join us by giving to this fund. Together, we can help ensure the stability of the region’s social service infrastructure and close gaps in needed assistance in the near-term and long-term for these fragile households. United Way is reaching out through our extensive regional network of partner organizations to assess needs and will see that ALICE families and those in poverty facing ongoing hardships are not forgotten in the weeks and months to come.
