of households under the ALICE threshold, which is the number of
households that are ALICE, combined with the households who earn
at or below the Federal Poverty Level, is 37% percent. In Allentown,
that number rises to 58%.
Supporting ALICE
The ALICE data shines a light on a hidden and growing crisis.
"The ALICE data project was designed to start a dialogue in our
community," said Rosado. "If such a large number of our neighbors
are experiencing economic hardship, how can our region thrive? Now
that we know the extent of the issue, the challenge is for all of us to
come together to create innovate solutions for how we can help our
community members continue on their path to financial sustainability."
"ALICE is the keystone of the Pennsylvania economy," said Kristen
Rotz, president of the United Way of Pennsylvania. "ALICE represents
a large portion of the purchasing power of Pennsylvania households.
All Pennsylvanians lean on ALICE for support on a daily basis. Now
that we are aware of the struggles ALICE faces, we must come together
to help ALICE take steps toward lasting financial stability."
United Ways across Pennsylvania are working to mobilize their
communities to champion ALICE families through policy and
programs. In the Lehigh Valley and Carbon County, United Way
of the Greater Lehigh Valley is working to support ALICE families
by providing information on resources via 211, ensuring that people
have access to nutritious food, that seniors can thrive in their homes,
and that kids have opportunities to be successful in school.

In the meantime, ALICE families in our community continue
to be resilient and work hard to get on a path to financial stability.
Elizabeth is nearing the end of her time at New Bethany Ministries
and has a lot of hope for what's ahead for her. "I never thought I
would be here today," she said. "I found a lot of growth in it. It's not
a good thing to be homeless, but I learned a lot."
Elizabeth is planning on moving into her own apartment this month
and wants to go back to school to get a degree in criminal justice.
"My kids say, 'Mom, you seem happy.' Everything is coming
together and I'm excited."
