MBK Baltimore Releases Report Highlighting
The Expensive Cost of Youth Incarceration Compared to Alternatives That Are More Cost-Efficient and More Effective

The Board of My Brother’s Keeper Baltimore, a cross-sectional collective of public and private sector leaders committed to improving the city’s outcomes on behalf of boys and young men of color (BYMOC), has released an new report on the gross discrepancies in costs and youth outcomes when comparing the use of Maryland sponsored placement facilities versus at-home/closer to home alternatives to incarceration (ATI) for Baltimore’s juvenile justice-involved youth. The report seeks to inform the public on some of the more compelling data that ensnares young people, especially youth of color, in a continuous cycle of punishment without any clear pathway towards rehabilitation for the impacted youth and restoration for the communities our youth call their homes.
