United Way Helps Families in Marshall County Achieve Financial Stability

As many as one-third of working Americans do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs. Wages have not kept pace with the rising cost of housing, healthcare, and education. Currently, 11% of Marshall County families live in poverty. ALICE (an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households earn more than the Federal Poverty Level, but less than the basic cost of living for our county. 29% of households in Marshall County are ALICE households.

For families walking a financial tightrope, unable to save for college, a home, or retirement, United Way is here to help.
