Alternative to incarceration programs receive $103,000 from Senator Golden

“…to put someone in Riker’s Island prison costs $90,000. It costs $19,000 to put someone through drug rehabilitation, $34,000 to place someone in a safe house (specifically Drew House for women in Brooklyn) and $129,000 to incarcerate a woman and put her two children in foster care. Lastly, it costs $240,000 to put a child in juvenile detention.”
