United Way of Bucks County and County Commissioners declares March ALICE Awareness Month

United Way of Bucks County has partnered with county commissioners to declare March as ALICE Awareness Month, recognizing families like Rachel who have benefited from the LIFT United program. The acronym stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) families. The proclamation, signed by the Board of Bucks County Commissioners, aims to encourage community engagement, support community initiatives, and inspire collaborative efforts to address the needs of ALICE families.

United Way’s president and chief executive, Marissa Christie, expressed gratitude for the recognition and expressed the organization’s commitment to highlighting the daily struggles and tough choices faced by ALICE households. The organization is releasing a series of video testimonials featuring local ALICE families, providing firsthand glimpses into their daily struggles and tough choices. One such video features Rachel, a medical receptionist and single mom who completed the nonprofit’s LIFT United program, a collaboration with Penn Community Bank, the County of Bucks, and Credit Counseling Center.
