We call these families ALICE. Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, is a way of defining and understanding the struggles of households that earn above the Federal Poverty Level, but not enough to afford a bare-bones household budget.

“United to mobilize people and strengthen our community”

United Way of Bartholomew County exists to help our community work better together.

We are a network of givers, advocates, volunteers, nonprofits and businesses who work together to create opportunity for all people in Bartholomew County. Our work is focused in three main areas of impact - financial stability, education and access to health. We fund strong nonprofits who are the backbone of our community, mobilize thousands of donors and volunteers each year, and create new, innovative programs that move our community forward.

It takes all of us working together to creating big, lasting change. Can we count you in? Learn more about our work on our website: https://bit.ly/2DSOOCH
