Lindenguild Hall, located in the Bathgate/Crotona Park West neighborhood of the Bronx, will consist of 104 units of newly constructed permanent supportive housing. Fifty percent of the units are studios set aside for homeless single adults who are, to the extent possible, veterans living with special needs. The remaining units will be reserved for low-income families living in the local community. A unit is reserved for the building's live-in superintendent, who will be available 24/7 to respond to emergencies.
Lantern Community Services, Inc. will offer on-site supportive service programming to all Lindenguild Hall tenants. Program offices will contain space for staff to conduct individual and group meetings, life skills counseling, education services and employment development, and referral support.
Supportive services at Lindenguild Hall will provide tenants with a variety of opportunities for personal growth. Staff and tenants will work together to establish individual goal-centered service plans. Staff will work closely with the family and single adult populations to ensure they achieve their program goals such as obtaining stable employment and participating in activities designed to promote healthy lifestyles. Services for veterans will focus on the unique challenges facing this population.
