Did you know….that the largest line item in an ALICE family’s budget (two working adults, 2 young children) is childcare? The average ALICE family in SE Idaho with two children under 5 will spend about $933 dollars a month on child care. How does quality, affordable child care and preschool options impact an ALICE family? .... By improving kindergarten readiness rates ....leading to higher graduation rates and postsecondary go on rates...leading to higher lifetime earnings and breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty.

Through our cradle to career work in American Falls with Preschool the Idaho Way, we spent almost a year convening various community partners to come together to create a plan that will provide up to a 66% increase in high quality, affordable preschool seats. United Way of Southeastern Idaho will be providing funds to help low and moderate income working families afford these opportunities by providing scholarships to early learners to access these opportunities.

We got to send off our all time favorite CPI from Idaho State University into world last week! Samantha Winslow thank you for your hard work and dedication to United Way of Southeastern Idaho! We will miss your smile and your feisty soul! You will do great thing lady!!

Here is a quick note from Sam:

My favorite thing about working with United Way was learning more about the Pocatello community and using my graphics to help inform others about some issues that people are struggling with. Most people were unaware of how many people are struggling with ALICE, I believe it’s important for people to know what’s going on within their community and what they can do to help those around them.

Working with United Way was such an incredible experience. I’m very grateful to have met everyone on the team, they’re all amazing people. I wouldn’t have traded my time with United Way for anything in the world.

At United Way of Southeastern Idaho, we like to say our superpower is in developing powerful partnerships. Today we highlight a few of these partners and the great work they have helped us launch. One of the needs identified through imPACT East Idaho, our cradle to career initiative, has been to educate our community about the value of kindergarten readiness and post-secondary education. We know that a foundation of educational success builds healthy communities and lifts-up individual families, two things that are at the heart of United Way.

We found an incredible partner in Target River who developed a campaign with these dual messages running March 2020 - May 2020. The robust messaging campaign included ads, videos, a new micro-website, print materials and much more. We look forward to leveraging the success of this first marketing campaign as we begin planning for our next run.

This messaging campaign would not have been possible with our partners Bayer , ONsemiconductor, Idaho National Laboratory, and Union Pacific Railroad. Through these companies’ generous grant processes, we were able to fund this essential messaging campaign. We are lucky to have these amazing corporate partners who believe in the work we are doing, care about the success of ALL individuals in our community and support us in this long-term systems change work. Powerful partners indeed!

Why is the ALICE report so important? Our nonprofit partners use the data to seek federal and state funding. And our policy makers and elected officials use the data to understand what’s really happening in our community.

Last week we had a call with Senator Mike Crapo and we shared that prior to the pandemic, the number of Idahoans under the federal poverty level was dipping but ALICE households were on the rise.

#StatsToKnow: Before the pandemic, 42% of households in SE Idaho were below the ALICE threshold, meaning that they did not earn enough to achieve financial stability.

Did you know? The new ALICE data shows that for a household of two adults and two children in childcare, they would need to have gross earnings of $5,020 per month combined or an annual household income of $60,240 in order to just get by!

We know that quality childcare/early learning experiences lead to increased academic performance, higher graduation rates, higher lifetime earnings, better health, improved job stability and much more over the course of an individual's life.
