Heart of Florida United Way shares the story of who ALICE is.
You know ALICE. You see them everyday. They are the childcare workers at your daycare, the cashier at your supermarket, aging parents on Social Security, servers, office clerks, and others. They are essential, yet they struggle to survive.
ALICE is Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. They are hardworking people one paycheck away from financial ruin. They live in continuous fear of an unexpected bill that may extend them beyond their already tight budgets.
For the month of June, we are standing united for ALICE. The Sharing Center’s ALICE in focus is children. Summer should be a fun and carefree time. Instead, children -a part of the ALICE population- carry the weight of wondering where their next meal will come from.
