Mission
CASES serves nearly 4,000 individuals annually in programs lasting anywhere from one day to more than two years.

Our programs are aimed at high-need populations--including young people, adults with mental illness, and chronic misdemeanants who are homeless, drug-addicted, or underemployed.

Our programs seek to interrupt the cycle of arrest, incarceration, release, and recidivism and help court-involved individuals make positive choices about their futures.

Services include but are not limited to:

    Community-based programs providing education and employment services for youth and young adults recently released from jail or prison
    In-home family therapy for youth in the community on probation who have behavioral health treatment needs
    Discharge planning and ongoing case management for men and women with serious mental illness pre- and post-release from Rikers Island Correctional Facility


Mission Statement: The mission of the Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services (CASES) is to increase public safety through innovative services that reduce crime and incarceration, improve behavioral health, promote recovery and rehabilitation, and create opportunities for success in the community.
