Close to Home NYC

button2_espanolClose to Home was a youth justice realignment reform in New York State and New York City. Launched in 2012 and backed by a change in State law, Close to Home diverted young offenders out of State facilities and shifted interventions and placements for those youth to community-based programs under the direct or indirect management of City government. During the past two decades, justice realignment attracted growing attention as a reform strategy to address the inefficiencies of State-centralized placements and correctional systems for offenders. The Research and Evaluation Center at John Jay College assessed the implementation and outcome of Close to Home in New York City.
