We all know people who are ALICE — Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.
What is Alice?
ALICE places a spotlight on a large population of hardworking people who work at low-paying jobs, have little or no savings — and are one emergency from falling into poverty. ALICE is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, and represents the growing number of families who are unable to afford the basics of housing, child care, food, transportation, health care, and technology. These workers often struggle to keep their own households from financial ruin, while keeping our local communities running. We wanted to bring awareness to the 44% of Texans that fall below the ALICE threshold. Through these reports, we have allowed local communities to address the needs of this population by identifying who they are and how they struggle.
