JusticeHome: Home-Based Alternative Incarceration Program Approved in Brooklyn
Thinking About Corrections


On May 8, 2013, the Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes and the Women’s Prison Association announced the launch of the JusticeHome program.  This program is a “home-based alternative to incarceration, for women, particularly those with children” aimed at reducing incarceration costs and recidivism among female offenders.  The program is based on the Drew House Model, which was opened in 2008, and has been evaluated by Columbia University as a model that should be  “scaled up and replicated” to serve more families.
