Living Like Alice


The Fond du Lac Area United Way has a way for you to check out what it is like to live among the working poor. It is called the Alice simulator. Alice is an acronym for Asset Limited Income Constrained Employee. Alice families are families that have family members who work multiple jobs, but due to their circumstances still have a hard time making ends meet. United Way Executive Director Amber Kilawee says a partnership with the state United Way chapter made it possible to use an Alice simulator. The simulator available on the United Way’s website shows you what it is like to live like an Alice family. Thirty-three percent of the population in Fond du Lac County falls into the Alice category.
