In 2012, the United Way of Northern New Jersey released its first statewide ALICE report, which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. The individuals known as ALICE live and work in our communities, yet do not earn enough to afford basic necessities.
What ALICE tells us about New Jersey is bracing: Despite being one of the wealthiest states in the nation, nearly 40 percent of our population struggles to provide food, housing, child care, transportation and health care, even after working extended hours at multiple jobs.
Joining New Start New Jersey’s Chair and Co-Founder Tammy Murphy for a discussion of ALICE are John Franklin, the CEO of the United Way of Northern New Jersey and Kiran Gaudioso, the Senior Vice President of the United Way of Northern New Jersey.
