When: Tuesday April 28, 2015
Where: Middlesex YMCA Hazen room
99 Union Street, Middletown
Why: Ed Bonilla, Senior Director for Community Resources will lead a discussion about the United Way’s ALICE report and what it means here in Middletown.
About ALICE: In the fall of 2014, Connecticut United Ways released the first statewide ALICE Report, a data-driven, comprehensive research project that quantifies the situation confronting many low-income working families across our state – in our urban, suburban and rural communities. The Report documents that the number of Connecticut households unable to afford all of life’s basic necessities far exceeds the official federal poverty statistics. United Way calls this newly revealed demographic ALICE, an acronym for AssetLimited, Income Constrained, Employed.
