Advocates

United Way of Western CT helps ALICE prosper through advocacy

Make your voice heard for hard-working, struggling families. Together, we can create real change.

If you feel like you want to do more than make a donation, you can always take the next step. Long-term solutions for ALICE may require policy change. And policy change begins with advocacy.
