  • Center for Community Alternatives: Innovative Solutions for Justices
    • The Center for Community Alternatives (CCA) works with people who would otherwise be incarcerated as confirmed by a Vera Institute of Justice study. For every person mandated to CCA, NYS taxpayers save at least the $32,000 in annual state prison costs. Even more savings accrue through reducing time in local jails or juvenile justice placements which cost more than twice the amount of state prison. In comparison, CCA's programs are roughly $ 10,000 per person per year or less. In an average year, CCA successfully diverts 100 adults and as many juveniles from more costly incarceration, saving New York State millions of dollars. Equally important, this reduces the collateral consequences of incarceration, strengthens families and builds safer communities.
