Why Is the Census Important to Illinois and Your Community
On this week's webinar, Amanda Wojan went over the second part of the Volunteer Census Ambassador (VCA) Program. This program empowers community sites, like congregate meal sites, to tap volunteers to share Census related messages. Some suburban Cook County congregate meal sites are implementing this program, and you can replicate it in your area with meal sites or other community sites.
AgeOptions is asking our home delivered meals programs to focus their outreach on Wednesday, March 25. That week is when most of the community members should have or very soon will receive the invitation to complete online.
Jason Echols went over how community organizations can help people complete the 2020 Census. Community organizations, like you, are trusted voices in your community and are encouraged to help people. Remember that self-reporting is the goal and to let people ask you for the help they need.
