Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed
ALICE is your childcare worker, the cashier at your supermarket, the gas attendant, your waitress, a home health aide, an office clerk. ALICE cannot always pay the bills, has little or nothing in savings, and is forced to make tough choices such as deciding between quality childcare or paying the rent. One unexpected car repair or medical bill can push these financially strapped families over the edge.
In July 2017, the Virginia ALICE Report was released for public review. After months of reviewing the data, we're hosting a conversation with our community to discuss and want YOU to join us. All are welcome as we discuss our community's most pressing needs and seek collaborative solutions.
