Homeless children and youth are at particularly high risk of being missed in the 2020 census. The Count All Kids Campaign has therefore prepared a fact sheet on counting homeless children.
The best way to make sure that homeless families are counted is probably to get the homeless fact sheet to organizations that serve homeless families. Please consider sharing the fact sheet, and this letter, with agencies serving children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness; homeless advocates, and with school district homeless liaisons.
Below are additional resources for counting homeless children:
