About Us

Third Street Alliance for Women & Children is a multi-program human services agency.

Our Mission

Third Street Alliance for Women & Children inspires and equips women, children, and families to live, learn, and thrive.

Our Vision

Women, children and families are connected to community and social networks, achieving positive outcomes including health, social and emotional development, and educational and economic advancement.

“Third Street Alliance provides robust, targeted solutions that build long-term housing, economic and educational stability for our community. Working families across the greater Easton area rely on us for safe, affordable, high quality early education and care for their children. Women, children and their families who are at-risk for or experiencing a housing crisis find solutions through our homeless prevention, shelter, housing and economic stabilization programming. While our services are wrapped in compassion, our end goal is to ensure women, children and families are equipped with the tools and resources that enable them to live, learn and thrive with resiliency.”

Our History

Serving Easton and the greater Lehigh Valley for almost a century, Third Street Alliance for Women & Children is a multi-program human services agency. We operate our programs out of the historic Simon Mansion, built in 1900 in downtown Easton, PA. Initially a private residence, we began serving the community as a YWCA in the 1930s and then in the 1980s transformed into the agency we are today. 

Through The Learning Center we provide families with early childhood learning opportunities, including care for children 6-weeks old to 13 years old.

Our Housing Stability program is a multi-faceted approach to helping those at-risk gain housing and economic stability. We believe in the power of communities, when people come together we can change lives.
