LCS

Lantern Community Services is a homeless services non-profit that helps people who are formerly homeless or have recently aged out of foster care rebuild their lives. We do this through our supportive housing program, which is based on the latest evidence of what provides the most benefit to our clients. Our programs deal with health, employment, education, and life skills and are delivered inside our residences. We have locations in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Upper Manhattan.


We are currently looking for volunteers who are licensed massage therapists to give massages to some of our clients. Many of them experience a lot of stress on a day to day basis, and getting a massage is something that would mean the world to them. If you are interested, get in touch!

Mission Statement

Lantern Community Services champions the independence and well-being of New Yorkers who have been impacted by or threatened with homelessness, as well as those who have aged out of foster care.

Description

Lantern is home to more than 1,400 formerly homeless people who live in our 15 apartment buildings across New York City. We pioneered services for people living with HIV, and we are one of the largest providers for young adults who have aged out of foster care. We give people more than just basic support and a place to live, prioritizing interventions with scientifically proven results. We’ve grown our programs a lot recently, working creatively with our existing resources, but now we need volunteer power to bring more programs to more of our clients!
