Lantern Community Services ("LCS") is the social service affiliate of Lantern Organization, a not-for-profit housing developer and service provider, established in 1997 to strengthen New York City communities by providing affordable housing and opportunities for personal development.
LCS provides services to residents living in more than 1000 units of permanent affordable and supportive housing for low-income families and individuals living with special needs including mental illness, HIV/AIDS, as well as young adults aging out of foster care.
Our Mission: To reduce the rate of homelessness among individuals who are mentally ill and chronically homeless in NYC. Supported housing is one of the most effective interventions in decreasing homelessness for some of New York City's most vulnerable populations such as individuals and families coping with mental illness, trauma/abuse, addiction and chronic illness including HIV/AIDS.
Since 2007 there has been a decrease in the chronically homeless population and a primary reason for the downward trend is the increasing use of permanent supported housing. We are doing our part to end homelessness in NYC and are currently recruiting new team members who believe strongly in affording individuals the opportunity to turn their lives around.
MTI/Scattered Site is a scattered site supported housing program of LCS which serves clients in Kings, Richmond, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
