In 2018, United Ways of Texas partnered with the United Way of Greater Houston to bring the ALICE report to Texas. ALICE, which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, places a spotlight on a large population of hardworking people who work at low-paying jobs, have little or no savings — and are one emergency from falling into poverty. We wanted to bring awareness to the 44% of Texans that fall below the ALICE threshold. Through this report, we have allowed local communities to address the needs of this population by identifying who they are and how they struggle. We are proud to have released the updated ALICE report on September 4, 2020.
