Census 2020 We All Count. Everyone.

Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a census to determine the number of people living in the United States.

The 2020 Census is extremely important to us at the YWCA. The census is not just a headcount, it determines political representation and allocation of more than $675 billion in state and federal funding to communities each year.

Federal law protects your census responses. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics.

YWCA Stepping Stones 24-Hour Hotline

Call the YWCA Stepping Stones' 24-hour crisis hotline at (309) 556-7000.

The YWCA Stepping Stones crisis hotline is free and confidential and is available 24-hours for anyone who has experienced sexual assault or abuse and stalking.
