The Census

It’s important to fill out the 2020 census and to count everyone that lives in your household. It helps us and our communities to get the help and funding that we need. Like improving our hospitals, nursing homes and medical agencies. It helps our police department to get the equipment and safety equipment to provide for our families. They risk their lives every day to protect us. It will help our fire department to get the resources that they need to provide them to get better and new equipment. 
The census helps our schools get the funding that we need to improve our schools and to have important programs to help the teachers and students. It will help us get better, new and safe playgrounds. It also helps to improve the roads in our streets. 
It helps our hospitals to get what they need. Also, to build more hospitals and give our patients great services and care that they need. It can help the disabled people, old people and retired people to get the benefits that they need and worked hard for. It helps low income people to get the services that they need like help pay rent, put food on the tables for their families and get health insurances for their families. It helps the nursing homes to improve and get better equipment for their patients. Also, for the safety for patients and the medical team. It helps our home health aides and the agencies to provide the care that the patients need and give the aides health insurance and benefits.
So you can see filling out the census will help my neighborhood of Far Rockaway.
