ALICE Summit January 2016

On January 26, 2016, United Way of the Lakeshore convened a summit with their board and committee leadership on ALICE.  We heard about relevant data from Voice Muskegon, Kids Count, and the Community Conversations with ALICE families. After hearing from a panel of experts on key issue areas, the group spent time using the World Cafe model to discuss effective strategies and next steps.

Below are materials from the day. We will follow-up with the results of the World Café discussions as we continue to inform our strategies for our community impact work.
