ALICE Recipients

Thank You

These are two small, but powerful words. We've heard them over and over again from the individuals and families who received assistance from the ALICE Recovery Fund. From restaurant workers to health care staff to bus drivers to child care professionals, ALICE essential workers were hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, they were able to pay rent, put food on the table, and pay basic bills. You can hear the overwhelming gratitude they've expressed in their own words and videos below.

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.
