  Home Counties - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The phrase "Home Counties" is used to designate the group of English counties which border or surround London.
However, being part of the Midlands, West Country or South West England would be mutually exclusive to being one of the Home Counties and presents a definite barrier to its scope.
The Home Counties are sometimes called London and the South-East or referred to as the London Commuter Belt or the London Metropolitan Area.

 Home Nations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Home Nations is a term used to refer to the four constituent parts of the United Kingdom - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - collectively, but also as separate entities, distinct from the United Kingdom as a whole.
Sometimes the term is used to include all the self-governing nations or states of the British Isles (thus including the Republic of Ireland, the Isle of Man, and the Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey); however, some consider this usage to be incorrect.
The term 'Home Union' is used to refer to the governing bodies of the four teams.

 Juvenile Out-of-Home Placement--Summary
Juveniles placed in shelters and foster care usually remained in their home counties, but those placed in mental health treatment facilities, group homes, and correctional facilities were more commonly in distant counties.
Among counties in which minority groups comprise at least 5 percent of the population, more than one-third of human services directors and correctional supervisors said that residential facilities are often insensitive to cultural and ethnic differences in the children they serve.
We think that counties and courts are in the best position to judge whether to place their children in new or long-standing facilities, or in large or small facilities--so long as the facilities meet basic licensing requirements that help to ensure quality service.

The glass back wall of her Lucas Valley home in Marin County exploded Saturday under a wall of mud and water, and she had to swim through a sliding door and down the raging river that once was her street to escape.
