Lantern Community Services

At Lantern, we provide permanent housing and social services for people who have been homeless for a long time, come from disadvantaged communities, and deal with issues such as mental illnesses, physical disabilities or HIV. We also provide housing for young people who have aged out of foster care. We have 15 supportive housing buildings located in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx, and serve a total population of about 1,500 people. We also operate and support two emergency shelters: one in Queens and the other in Washington Heights

Currently, Lantern is looking for a volunteer who can assist one of our visually-impaired staff member's in a short-term filing/organization task. This project is pretty straight forward, based in the Upper West Side of Manhattan and can work with a flexible schedule. Please reach out if you are interested!

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.


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!
