United Way: Working To Secure Equity For ALICE
United Way of Northern New Jersey works to remove the barriers that keep ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) and those in poverty from achieving financial stability. In New Jersey, 1.2 million households were already living paycheck to paycheck before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. With so many families facing an uncertain future, the stakes couldn’t be higher -- for everyone. As we rebuild our economy, United Way believes that securing racial and economic equity for ALICE will improve life for all.
