16.1 million households are living in poverty and another 34.7 million are living in Asset Limited, Income Constrained, (but) Employed (ALICE) homes. This means that many of our crime victims are living paycheck-to-paycheck; meaning, there is no room for an emergency such as a partner in custody due to domestic violence. This session will discuss how to assist victims who are on the verge of poverty and do not have their basic needs met. Strategies, suggestions, and case study will be presented.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Describe ALICE.
- Recognize the ways ALICE effects clients you serve/assist.
- Implement policies and practices that are trauma informed.
