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.

Lantern is currently looking for a volunteer to help our clients who are planning on moving out of our housing build financial skills so that they can have a successful transition. We need folks who can teach things like financial literacy, credit building, and budgeting. If you have experience in this field, we would love to hear from you! Experience working with similar populations in a plus.

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!
