Thank you to San Francisco Public Press for publishing a 40-year timeline on local and national efforts to end youth homelessness.

From Congress passing the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act, to the birth of Larkin Street Youth Services, the establishment of the “transitional age youth” as ages 18 to 24, cities conducting the first biennial Point-in-Time Count for youths, and the launch of the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing last July.

This timeline shows how far we’ve come in the effort to end youth homelessness and how far we still have to go.
