In NJ, 10.5 percent of our households live in poverty, but another 28 percent are known as ALICE households which means they cannot cover essentials.
The United Way uses the term “ALICE”: Asset Limited, Income-Constrained, Employed to further define and explain the working poor population in the United States and New Jersey.
Housing the homeless is one part of a strategy that can move people through the transition to financial stability and self-sufficiency.
Homeless and low-income individuals and families face challenges in affording the state’s high cost of living, including high rents.
We are pleased to announce our Silver and Bronze sponsors to date – Hudson County United Way, Andora & Romano L.L.C, and Jeffrey R. Kuschner, Esq.
