ALICE UPDATE 5/22/24

United for ALICE has released the latest update to the report “Alice in the Crosscurrents.” This new data sheds light on how households faired between 2021 and 2022. While wages have increased, so too has the cost of living, leaving many of our friends and neighbors in precarious financial situations.

United Way of Whatcom County opens doors and removes barriers for our friends and neighbors experiencing financial hardship

We know that financial instability is a complex issue that requires multiple solutions. By uniting a network of local businesses, nonprofits, stakeholders, and generous donors, we help our friends and neighbors who are struggling achieve financial stability and ensure that critical services in our community remain available for years to come!

UNITED FOR EQUITY

Equity is the intentional inclusion of everyone in society. Equity is achieved when systemic, institutional, and historical barriers based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and other identities are dismantled and no longer predict socioeconomic, education and health outcomes.

UNITED AGAINST RACISM

We recognize that structural racism and other forms of oppression have contributed to persistent disparities which United Way seeks to dismantle. Our United Way network strives to engage community members, especially those whose voices have traditionally been marginalized.

We work with individuals, nonprofits, public and private partners to find and support solutions to ensure everyone has the resources, opportunities and networks they need to thrive. At United Way of Whatcom County, we oppose all forms of racism and discrimination and commit to leveraging our assets (convening, strategic investments, awareness building, and advocacy) to create more equitable communities.
