Too Big to Ignore: 10 Years Later

John Burton Advocates for Youth (JBAY) has published “Too Big to Ignore, Ten Years Later,” a five-year policy agenda to address homelessness among California’s youth. This publication marks the ten-year anniversary of the 2009 release of “Too Big to Ignore: Youth Homelessness in California,” a previous policy agenda developed by JBAY and California Coalition for Youth.

The 2019 policy agenda was developed based on in-depth interviews with 44 experts in the field, and covers four areas: resources and funding streams, adjacent systems and access to services, K-12 and post-secondary interactions and interventions, and strengthening the current homeless response system for homeless youth.
