United Ways of Tennessee launched a statewide data project in 2019, which provided a comprehensive measure of financial hardship across our state. In Tennessee, 47 percent of households struggle to afford the basic necessities of housing, child care, food, health care and transportation.

ALICE is your child care worker, the cashier at your supermarket, the gas attendant, the salesperson at your big box store, your waitress, a home health aide, an office clerk. ALICE cannot always pay the bills, has little or nothing in savings, and is forced to make tough choices such as deciding between quality child care or paying the rent. One unexpected car repair or medical bill can push these financially strapped families over the edge.

The future success of our communities is directly tied to the financial stability of these fragile ALICE households.
