The Sixth Street Shelter is a long-standing program of the Community Action Lehigh Valley. Since 1984, the Shelter has been providing temporary housing for Lehigh Valley homeless families with children.

Today, the Sixth Street Shelter proudly offers 25 individual family apartments.  It is the only shelter in the Valley to offer homeless families the privacy and security of a furnished apartment with a complete kitchen.

The philosophy of the Sixth Street Shelter, in keeping with the broader mission of the Community Action, encourages those it serves to accept responsibility for themselves.
