Please join CVNA as we welcome Deann Cook, Director of the United Ways of Iowa as she will present on the ALICE report for 2018 on Thursday, August 2, 2018 from 8-9:30 a.m.
The United Way ALICE Report for Iowa is a look at the percentage of Iowa households that earn above the federal poverty level, but who are unable to meet a basic needs budget. More than one-third of Iowa households are in this population. They are in all the jobs we need to maintain our communities – health and childcare providers, cashiers, wait staff, retail clerks and customer service representatives – and dozens of additional job categories. They are working and earning and still struggling to survive.
The report helps us understand the challenges and opportunities faced by the people our communities rely on most.
