United Way is a champion for working families. Recently, Connecticut United Ways released the ALICE Report, a study of financial hardship in our state. ALICE stands for Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed. Despite working full time, one in three households in our region are ALICE, struggling to pay bills, put food on the table and make ends meet. This affects a child’s ability to succeed and a family’s financial and physical health. This affects our entire community.

The challenges facing ALICE households are complex, but we are making progress. By bringing together people, partners and resources, we work toward lasting solutions, not short-term charity–focusing on education, financial security, health and basic needs–the building blocks for a good quality of life. No one organization can do it alone. It is through connecting people and passions that we’re able to make our region an even better place to live, work and raise a family.
