We are United For ALICE
In northern New Jersey, Women United channels donations and efforts to help ALICE and poverty-level women and their families become financially self-sufficient.
ALICE is your friend or neighbor, employed in a job essential to our shared success, such as a home health aide, preschool teacher, or cashier. Despite working hard, these individuals and families are unable to cover their basic needs such as housing, child care, food, health care, and transportation.
Women United is helping remove the barriers that keep many women and children from achieving their potential.
Meet our leadership team
United Way of Northern New Jersey Women United is led by volunteers who are passionate about making a lasting impact on the lives of local ALICE women and their families. Meet the women who are leading the way:
