Invest in Change that Lasts

We all win when a child succeeds in school, when all families are financially stable, when people are healthy, and our neighborhoods are a place we are proud to call home.

The Wabash Valley is made up of problem solvers, difference makers, and opportunity creators.

Together, we’re on a mission to change lives forever in our community by investing in programs focused on our BOLD GOAL!

ALICE is a hardworking member of the community who is employed yet does not earn enough to afford the basic necessities of life.

ALICE earns above the federal poverty level, but does not earn enough to afford a bare-bones household budget of housing, child care, food, transportation, and health care.

In most cases, ALICE is not eligible for public assistance because they are, in fact, earning income above the federal poverty level. These individuals and families are faced with difficult choices daily, often detrimental in the long run.  Put food on the table or gas in the car?  Take a sick child to the doctor or pay the utility bill?

Over 44% of the households in the Wabash Valley fall into ALICE or further into poverty.

The United Way’s Bold Goal addresses moving families out of struggle and into stability.
