ACROSS MICHIGAN, 43 PERCENT OF HOUSEHOLDS STRUGGLE TO AFFORD THE BASIC NECESSITIES OF HOUSING, CHILD CARE, FOOD, TECHNOLOGY, HEALTH CARE AND TRANSPORTATION.
That's why United Ways across Michigan, with help from the Consumers Energy Foundation, have come together to bring you the ALICE Project.
The ALICE Report is the most comprehensive depiction of need in Michigan to date. In the five years since the Michigan Association of United Ways has released its first ALICE Report, Michigan residents have started to get a clearer picture of their neighbors, loved ones, friends, and acquaintances than ever before.
The 2019 release of our third ALICE Report continues to inform the conversation about the real and present needs of our residents. The newest report shows the increased cost of living, combined with low wages, reduced work hours, and depleted savings has led to an uneven economic recovery in Michigan. That’s why Michigan United Ways remain committed to serving ALICE, and all those in need, through programs that strive to improve the health, education, and financial stability of all Michigan residents.
THE UNITED WAY ALICE REPORT REVEALS THE FINANCIAL HARDSHIPS OF MANY MICHIGAN HOUSEHOLDS.
