YES! to Census Week!
April 1st marked Census Day officially kicking off the 2020 Census across the nation. A complete and accurate count is critical in ensuring Harris County receives funding for essential services and adequate representation in the legislature. Every person counts! During the next decade before the 2030 Census, our city and communities risk losing $15,000 per person not counted.
Volunteer Houston is collaborating with Houston in Action to ensure our typically undercounted populations have the opportunity to submit their census responses in 2020. We are focusing on seniors, refugees, LatinX, low-income households and even kids! Help us get the word out by participating in a VH phone bank from home. Follow Volunteer Houston to find out how and when you can help.
