Third Street Alliance for Women & Children provides a safe and healthy space for women, children, and families to live, learn, and thrive.
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 Montessori methods for Alzheimer care in our Adult Service Program, 21st century STEAM programing 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, an adult day center, 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.
