The Court Employment Project (CEP) provides young felony offenders in the five boroughs with a six-month, structured program of case management and support services.
CEP's eligibility requirements are intended to target defendants who would receive a jail or prison sentence without the intervention of an alternative to incarceration (ATI) program. CEP may make exceptions to these requirements if there are additional factors that demonstrate a strong likelihood that the defendant would otherwise receive a jail sentence.
CEP accepts 16 to 19 year-old defendants who are:
|Bronx: 718.537.8330||Brooklyn: 718.222.1585 (.1586 and .1587)|
|Manhattan: 212.553.6313||Queens: 718.537.8330|
The Nathaniel Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Program provides rehabilitation, nursing and psychiatric services, integrated substance use counseling, group therapy, employment and housing assistance, case management and peer support delivered by a mobile, multi-disciplinary mental health treatment team for adults with severe mental illness convicted for felony offenses. Judges may monitor participants' progress in the ACT program for up to two years before sentencing.
The Nathaniel ACT Program serves individuals indicted on felony charges who are jail- or prison-bound and who have a severe and persistent mental illness. Individuals must have a demonstrated history of noncompliance with traditional mental health treatment services and have high use of acute psychiatric hospitals.
