Lantern is one of New York City’s largest providers of supportive housing for young adults who have aged out of foster care.
Who We Serve
Lantern’s work strengthens and stabilizes families, helps parents strengthen their parenting skills, and provides opportunities for families to grow and learn together.
Lantern pioneered supportive housing in New York City for people living with HIV/AIDS more than 20 years ago.
Lantern participates in the Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness, to provide every US veteran with access to permanent supportive housing.
We serve hundreds of single men and women in our congregate housing facilities and scattered site apartments, many of whom are living with mental illness.
Lantern currently operates two emergency housing sites for single adults experiencing homelessness. These sites house nearly 200 men and women, providing them with on-site physical and mental health care as well as case management, employment services, daily meals, and housing transition support.
