2016 IForum - ALICE's Search for Survival
Taped for later broadcast by CT-N, the two-hour IForum on “ALICE’s Search for Survival” drew municipal officials, planners, housing experts, homelessness service providers and human services non-profit administrators. They came to better understand how 35% of all Connecticut households try to survive on budgets below $65,000 for 4-person households and $21,000 for individuals. Maura Cook of United Way of Connecticut took attendees through an exercise that required them to make almost-impossible choices between food and housing, healthcare and adequate transportation, affordable childcare and whether to save or pay off debt.
