Meals on Wheels of Alameda County counting homebound seniors in the 2020 CensusName: Meals on Wheels of Alameda County counting homebound seniors in the 2020 CensusDate: March 12, 2020 - July 31, 2020Website: http://www.feedingseniors.orgEvent Description:
2020 will be an important year. Census 2020 will determine federal funding for our schools, healthcare, transportation, representation, and housing until the next census in 2030. Meals on Wheels of Alameda County, in partnership with Alameda County, is working to ensure that our community is fully counted. Nearly 26% of Alameda County residents are considered “hard-to-count” and face barriers to census completion. Sadly, families with young children, low-income families, immigrants, and non-native English speaking households have often been undercounted.
Meals on Wheels of Alameda County is utilizing outreach channels and representatives to ensure our homebound seniors have access to the technology required to take the first ever online Census. All of our seniors will have access to a dedicated and knowledgeable person to assist them with their Census-related needs.
