Implementation of New York´s close to home initiative: a new model for youth justice

The Center for Children’s Law and Policy


In 2012, the New York State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo authorized a landmark initiative known as “Close to Home,” which was designed to align New York State and New York City’s juvenile justice system with research and nationally-recognized approaches to working with young people charged with crimes. In five years, the Close to Home Initiative has transformed the experience of youth who come into contact with the justice system in New York City. By shifting focus away from incarcerating youth in large, dangerous, geographically remote institutions, Close to Home has sent an important message: it is far wiser to keep youth in their communities and near their families, since those connections hold the greatest potential to help youth build new skills and stay out of trouble in the long term.
