Sprout by Design

Close to Home allows young people found to need a period of out-of-home placement by the Family Court to be placed in residential programs closer to their families and communities.

Under Close to Home, young people receive therapeutic services at small group homes in or near the five boroughs where they are close to resources that can support their treatment and transition back into their communities.

ACS oversees two types of residential placement services for adjudicated youth: Non-Secure Placement (NSP) and Limited-Secure Placement (LSP).
