The Census 2020 is Coming - Make sure you get counted!
The census is an important part of how the government determines how and where to send resources to based on the populations of people in different areas. It greatly affects things such as Medicaid, ArKids, Medicare, School breakfast and lunch programs, SNAP, Hospitals, Schools, Parks, Businesses, Firestations and more. It also has an impact on redistricting, local wards and school board, as well as many other state and federal issues.
MAKE IT COUNT AND BE COUNTED. You can find out more about 2020 Census here.
Arkansas Support Network’s (ASN) Family Support Program received a federal grant to fund the Northwest Arkansas Community Parent Resource Center (CPRC)--the first in the state— initially in 2009. We serve families of children with disabilities ages birth through 26 for the counties of Benton, Carroll, Madison, and Washington.
The NWA CPRC, while advocating for children in special education, specifically emphasizes training and information for all families, including: foster families, marginalized communities, the parents of young people in the juvenile justice system, and self advocates. In addition, the CPRC collaborates with professionals working with these groups.
We would love to hear from you! For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (479)927-4100.
