6/17: Good People at TheaterWorks

June 18, 2015

On Wednesday, June 17, 150 United Way guests enjoyed us for an evening at TheaterWorks' for their production of Good People. The event was free, made possible thanks to the generosity of TheaterWorks.

We could see a lot of ALICE (Asset, Limited, Income, Constrained, Employed) in Erika Rolfsrud's portrayal of Margaret. Like Margaret, ALICE is living just one emergency away from financial ruin.

Did you know? Despite working full time, one in three households in our region are ALICE, struggling to pay bills, put food on the table and make ends meet. This affects a child's ability to succeed and a family's financial and physical health. This affects our entire community. The challenges facing ALICE households are complex, but we are making progress. By bringing together people, partners and resources, we work toward lasting solutions.
