What does poverty look like to you? A homeless person? Someone living in dilapidated housing? A child with no shoes? How about ALICE - Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained, Employed...or in other words, the working poor? ALICE is the majority face of poverty - and the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula is doing something about it. We talk with Shante Bell, a self-described ALICE, Executive Director of the Historic Triangle Community Services Center, and Charvella West, Director of Community Impact and Operations for UWVP, about the new face of poverty and what can be done to help those in need.
