Sixth Street Family Shelter

219 N. 6th St
Allentown, PA - 18102

Shelter (non-emergency) for homeless families. Transitional Housing Program up to 2 years for families pursuing educational/vocational goals: Turner Street Apartments.

The Sixth Street Shelter in Allentown, the largest family shelter in the region, has been providing housing and casework services to homeless families with children since 1984. It is a program of the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley, which, for over 45 years, has been in the vanguard of community-based solutions to the challenges of the regions low-income people.
The shelter has 25 units and provides intensive programming for up to 60 days. Families work with staff to set and achieve specific goals. During their stay, family members work with the Shelters caseworkers to design a goal plan, which includes a search for permanent housing, life skills education, and a budget plan. Our guiding principle is to help families set and reach their goals through intensive and effective case management, in-house programming, and referrals to appropriate services.
