About Our Communities

United Way of Marshall County serves communities across Marshall County.  It is home to almost 50,000 residents living in a variety settings from the more urban areas within the City of Plymouth, to the smaller quaint towns of Bremen, Bourbon, Argos, Culver, and LaPaz, to the rural countryside. 

As we all know, the problems of our communities do not stop at county lines. United Way of Marshall County combines the strengths, diversity of skills and experience, to create more impact, grow more resources, be more influential stewards of our combined assets, and have a greater impact on our local community.

United Way conducted a study of our economic hardship across our state. What we found was startling – and has radically shifted the way we think about the communities we serve. We discovered a population we now call 
ALICE which stands for “Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.

These individuals and families live in the gray area between abject poverty and some semblance of financial and social stability.  ALICE residents are our hard-working neighbors whose income puts them above the poverty line but below the level of self-sufficiency.  Research shows that nearly 30% of Marshall County residents fall into the ALICE population.
