Providing emergency financial assistance helps working families overcome one-time barriers and remain stably housed.
When you’re living paycheck-to-paycheck, even one financial setback can be catastrophic. About 24% of Bucks County residents are ALICE, an acronym for asset limited, income constrained, and employed. ALICE earns more than the Federal Poverty Level, but less than the basic cost of living. In 2020, 77% of these families had 1 month or less of savings.
