Women of Tocqueville Focus
ALICE households are working hard, often multiple jobs, and still struggle to make ends meet. ALICE is our family, our neighbors, and our friends. ALICE is educators, health care professionals, front line workers, retail associates and other professions that keep our businesses and economy running. Unfortunately for many, the cost of living outpaces wages, meaning that many families find themselves struggling to make ends meet and one emergency away from a potential financial crisis.
Women of Tocqueville is more than a giving circle. In addition to providing critical financial resources to support programs and priority projects to improve the well-being of children and families in central and northeastern Connecticut, members have the opportunity to create sustainable positive change and impact in the lives of ALICE households through engagement opportunities to address the root causes of issues and ignite systemic change.
Through gifts of wisdom, service and treasure, the collective power of Women of Tocqueville members helps facilitate and enable the change necessary for all local families and children to succeed.
