At a young age, Bill, a diabetic husband and father, was diagnosed with early Alzheimer's. Bill’s wife Jane is employed full-time to support the family due to his disability. Our partner agency Endeavors Adult Development Center’s Day Friends program provides respite care during the day so Jane can continue her full-time employment. Jane is appreciative of the memory care services provided.
United Way St. Croix Valley is proud to support the ALICE initiative in Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties.
Who is ALICE?
ALICE, an acronym which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, is a way of defining our families, neighbors, and colleagues (men and women) who work hard, earn above the federal poverty level, but not enough to afford a basic household budget.
