Lantern Community Services is a social services organization that provides services to people who are formerly homeless or have recently aged out of foster care. 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 support our clients in the areas of health, employment, education, and life skills and are delivered inside our residences.

Lantern is looking for volunteers who can give an hour each week on Monday from roughly 11am-12pm to help Chef Louise in giving Lantern residents a cooking class. This is one of the most popular activities in the building and an extra hand would ensure that all residents can partake in and enjoy learning these new cooking skills!

Lantern has various locations across New York City from the Bronx, Upper and Mid Manhattan, to Brooklyn and Queens, so there's a location for everyone to serve even if this location doesn't fit your schedule!

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!
