"Who is ALICE in Whatcom County? Why do one in 3 households struggle to make ends meet?"

Join the discussion as Patricia Boyce and Kristi Birkeland from United Way of Whatcom County walk us through the most recent ALICE report (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed). We will learn more about the Whatcom County households that are struggling to get by. Is the number of ALICE households changing over time?  Which households face the greatest challenges and how can we lift ALICE households so that more families in our community can thrive. “
