Elevating Residents in Crisis
The Elevating Residents In Crisis (E.R.I.C.) Fund was established for all who are going through difficult times.
44% of Martin County households are considered to be in the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) population or already in poverty. The ALICE Population represents those who are working whose salaries do not match Martin County's cost of living. They are educated, hardworking and striving to create a better life for themselves and their families. More people are living paycheck to paycheck where one car repair or medical bill can tip them over into financial crisis.
