For the United Way of SE Idaho, our 'WHY' starts with A.L.I.C.E.
A.L.I.C.E.--standing for 'Asset Limited, Income-Constrained, Employed'--is United Way's study of financial hardship in our region and state. It represents the growing number of individuals and families who are working, but unable to afford the basic necessities of housing, food, child care, and transportation.
Currently, 44% of SE Idahoans are struggling to make ends meet. For a family of four with two children in childcare, it takes a household income of at least $54,000 annually to survive and meet all a family's basic needs.

This is a valuable tool for partners to: Identify critical regional needs, commit to takign collaborative action, prioritize projects and programs, and use as a resource for grant writing, etc.
The assessment highlights areas of opportunity for dedicated partners to work together to create healthy change for all of SE Idaho.

1) A.L.I.C.E. in SE Idaho
