United Ways throughout Michigan have come together to bring you the ALICE Project. ALICE stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed and represents those in our communities who are working, yet still struggling to make ends meet.

Households across Michigan, comprised of all races, genders, and ages, cannot afford the basics - housing, child care, food, health care and transportation. When households face difficult economic conditions and cannot afford basic necessities, they are forced to make difficult choices and take risks that have consequences for their households and their communities.

Here in Ottawa County, 36% of our neighbors are struggling to make ends meet. This is an increase over 34% in 2014. Learn more about ALICE in Ottawa County by viewing page 201-202 of the ALICE Report above.
