The Need That We Address

Did you know that 23% of the 116,903 households in Howard County fall under the ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed) threshold, according to United Way of Central Maryland? That’s 26,887 households! These are our neighbors who are fully employed and just over the cliff of the federal poverty line, meaning that they do not qualify for any social services, yet still cannot make ends meet. Keep in mind, the federal poverty level is just above $26,000 for a family of 4. We know it is nearly impossible to live anywhere in this country on $26,000 for a family of 4, but especially not here in Howard County. Because Columbia Community Care does not ask for proof of need or identification, our existence has been critical in addressing the urgent needs of the 26,887 households who fall under that ALICE threshold.
