Lantern Community Services provides innovative services to help New Yorkers who are formerly homeless or have recently aged out of foster care recreate their lives. Our programs with proven results in health, employment, education and life skills are delivered inside our residences and tailored to each person’s needs. We provide over 2,000 clients—many of whom live with mental illness, addiction, disability, HIV or other chronic illnesses—with the tools they need to integrate successfully into the greater community with dignity and independence.
Lantern needs volunteers to give haircuts to our residents! A good haircut can make all the difference, both to a person's self esteem and to help get a job. If you have experience cutting hair, please consider getting in touch with us.
