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.
United for ALICE® - full length version
Charlene is a northern New Jersey mother who works full time and is raising her two young sons. While Charlene works to improve the quality of area child care centers she struggles to provide for her family. Charlene is ALICE: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. Charlene chose to share her story with United Way of Northern New Jersey in hopes that it will increase awareness and, ultimately, improve conditions. She says: “If we don’t discuss this, and we don’t talk about it, and we don’t raise the awareness, it’s never going to change.” Will you join United Way and Charlene and lend your voice to be #UnitedForALICE?
