September 22 is National Voter Registration Day. As state deadlines for registering draw near, we encourage advocates and organizations to assist clients and houseless folks to register and cast ballots.
National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is November 15th - 22nd, 2020. To register your events please visit: https://hhweek.org.
Due to COVID-19, we are encouraging communities to consider holding virtual events. NCH will be hosting a number of virtual presentations and conversations through the week. We are also asking folks to #Shareyourtable on social media, with either a literal interpretation or a metaphorical imagery of what a table means to you.
Census 2020 will be conducting the enumeration of people experiencing homelessness next week, Sept. 22-24. For more information about the Census homeless counts, see HUD's info page, or the Census2020 information.
If you are an organization that provides shelter, especially if you are assisting folks in non-congregate settings during the pandemic, please contact the Census Bureau immediately via the email@example.com to ensure they get counted. You can also find your local Census office contact here.
