In September 2016, United Way of Wisconsin unveiled its first statewide ALICE Report, a data-driven, comprehensive research project upending the conventional view of Wisconsin. The fact is that the number of Wisconsin households who are unable to afford life’s basic necessities far exceeds the official federal poverty statistics. United Way calls this newly revealed demographic ALICE, an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. Right here in Manitowoc County, 41% of residents are living on or less than a basic needs budget. These households are forced to make difficult choices such as skipping preventative health care, healthy food, or car insurance. ALICE is your neighbor, the store clerk, or your child care worker, and ALICE needs your help!
