Serving the greater Lehigh Valley for more than a century, Third Street Alliance for Women & Children is a multi-program human services agency. Housed in the historic Simon Mansion and the adjoining Bixler-Ward House, we provide the community with 21st century STEAM programming in our Learning Center and expanded supportive services in our shelter for women & children. We believe in the power of communities, when people come together we can change lives.
The mansion, built between 1900-1902, sits along the corridor to historic Downtown Easton in an area known as Millionaire’s Row. The central location adds convenience for our program customers and also makes us a frequent stop for walking tours, architecture and history enthusiasts, as well as the general public. Within these walls, we house historically preserved community spaces, a commercial kitchen, shelter accommodations, a gymnasium, a 21st Century STEAM lab, childcare classrooms, and program administrative offices.
Our “Mansion with A Mission” represents a unique re-purposing of a historically preserved home into a contemporary program serving some of our most vulnerable community members.
