Lantern Community Services provides innovative services to help New Yorkers who are formerly homeless or have recently aged out of foster care recreate their lives. Our programs have proven results in health, employment, education and life skills. They are delivered inside our residences and tailored to each person’s needs. We provide over 2,000 clients-many of whom live with mental illness, addiction, disability, HIV or other chronic illnesses-with the tools they need to integrate successfully into the greater community with dignity and independence.

One of the programs we run here is called Fresh Food Box. We get weekly deliveries of fresh fruits and vegetables to many of our buildings, and can use help with the set up and distribution of them. Volunteers are also welcome to bring in recipes or even do cooking demonstrations! If you love food, and are interested in a volunteer opportunity that gives you more of a chance to interact with our clients face to face, this is the position for you!
