ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed)

The COVID-19 pandemic claimed the lives of millions and unleashed an unprecedented storm of competing economic forces – leaving in its wake an additional 27,388 Mississippi households unable to afford basics.

In 2021, 219,019 households were in poverty, while another 360,043 were ALICE®.  When combined, 52% of Mississippi households were struggling financially nearly two years into the pandemic.

Pandemic assistance is only temporary and now waning. With inflation on the rise, there are warning signs that struggling households may face a more uncertain future and, in fact, may already be losing ground. Please join United Way of the Capital Area in building solutions to improve life for ALICE families by spreading the word on social media about the #ALICE2023 Report and how this new data can help drive lasting, positive change.
