Impact Your Community


When you read between the lines, you’ll see why hardworking ALICE households can’t make ends meet. There are no good options when basic bills add up but paychecks don’t.


Our research found 1.2 million New Jersey households are ALICE or living in poverty, unable to afford the basics. For these households, the struggle to survive has become a way of life.  

United Way is looking beyond temporary fixes to find solutions that result in long-term, sustainable change for individuals and families.


Join us as we fight for a better life for ALICE and everyone in our community.

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.
