Leeward Hall is new construction of 15 units of permanent supportive housing in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the Bronx. All units are two-bedroom apartments and are set aside for families living with special needs. There is also a unit reserved for the building's live-in superintendent, who is available for tenants at all times, in case of emergencies.
Lantern Community Services delivers on-site supportive service programming to all Leeward Hall tenants. Program offices offer space for staff to conduct individual and group client meetings, life skills counseling, education and employment recommendations, and referral support.
Supportive services at Leeward Hall provide tenants with a variety of opportunities for personal growth. Staff work closely with the families to build and strengthen individual competency, family relationships, and quality of life.
