ALICE stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. The more than 16,000 ALICE households in our region are working but not earning enough to keep up with the cost of living. Another 6800+ households in Crawford, Marion, and Wyandot are earning below the Federal Poverty Level.
ALICE can be any age, race, or ethnicity. ALICE families look just like yours, and at nearly one in three households in our tri-county region, chances are they are your neighbors, coworkers, classmates, and friends.
