The fourth and final in a series of virtual ALICE Town Halls was focused on Workforce Development, one of the major trends identified in the 2020 Connecticut United Ways ALICE Report. If you were not able to attend, please click here to access the recording

On Labor Day Weekend, Connecticut United Ways released the fourth edition of the ALICE Report, a study on financial hardship.

The new report concludes that before the onset of the pandemic, 38% of Connecticut’s households lacked the income to pay for necessities such as housing, food, child care, health care, technology and transportation.  United Way calls these households ALICE, an acronym that stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.

The report further demonstrates the now exacerbated economic vulnerability of many Connecticut residents, who, in addition to dealing with longstanding financial challenges, are now also struggling with furloughs, job losses and an inability to pay bills and provide for their families.

If you or someone you know is in need of support, please call United Way 2-1-1 or visit to access resources available for all Connecticut residents.
