Providing Stability for Success: Identifying Housing Resources for Non-Minor Dependents
John Burton Advocates for Youth presented this session as part of the Chief Probation Officers of California’s 2020 Continuum of Care Reform Virtual Conference. The presentation provided an overview of the various housing supports in California available for current and former probation foster youth. These resources include extended foster care for youth ages 18-21 with out-of-home placement orders, and housing programs and vouchers for former probation youth up to age 24. Attendees were also familiarized with the state’s homelessness response system and the role of local homeless Continuums of Care (CoC).
