ALICE Recovery Fund

COVID-19 Hits ALICE Families Hard

The ALICE Recovery Fund (#ALICErecovery) was established by

United Way of Northern New Jersey in partnership with

United Way of Hunterdon County to address emerging needs of 

ALICE households and those in poverty in response to the

COVID-19 pandemic.

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 six counties, 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 close gaps in needed assistance in the near-term and long-term for these fragile households and help ensure the stability of the region’s social service infrastructure. 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.

Meet ALICE

ALICE    is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, and represents the growing number of families who are unable to afford the basics of housing, food, child care, health care, technology, and transportation. These workers often struggle to keep their own households from financial ruin, while keeping our local economies running.
