Impact Your Community

For families living paycheck to paycheck across the five counties we serve, it was impossible to make ends meet before the pandemic. Now, the ends are completely frayed and steadily unraveling. 


It will take everyone’s effort to rebuild our community. But we can’t go back to “normal.”  


Normal means 37 percent of all New Jersey households — and 52 percent of Black households — are unable to afford basic bills. Normal equated to 1.2 million households in New Jersey struggling to stay afloat pre-COVID-19, households that are ALICE or in poverty. 


We can do better. Even more so now, improving life for all starts with improving life for ALICE. Join us in building a community of equity and GIVE today!
