Building Strong Communities: Investing in Children and Families
Join Louisiana CASA for our Building Strong Children and Families Learning Series. The eighth session in this public educational series is Meet ALICE - Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. Parents who do not have access to reliable sources of income or other resources often experience difficulties in many areas. They may be unable to access safe and stable housing, reliable health care, food, and other tangibles that contribute to health and well-being. These challenges make it hard to focus on other areas of stability and security and often consume valuable time and energy for parents. Join us for a presentation by Sarah Berthelot to understand the prevalence of ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households in Louisiana and the impact these struggles have on children.
