The majority of homeless New Yorkers are single adults, many of whom are living with mental illness. These men and women generally endure the most protracted periods of homelessness. Once housed, they face daunting challenges in adapting to their new lives and successfully maintaining stable housing.

Lantern’s supportive services are designed to assist these individuals in getting their lives back on track. We serve hundreds of single men and women in our congregate housing facilities, providing meaningful solutions to New York City’s homeless crisis.

Our employment and educational services; health and wellness programs; arts, culture, fitness activities and other services provide a solid base for moving forward and creating the conditions that support housing stability over time.
