Every day in the Lehigh Valley, families find themselves without a place to call home. A father loses his job. A mother struggles to keep her children together. An illness drains a family’s resources. The Sixth Street Shelter offers a safe home for families with children experiencing homelessness in the Lehigh Valley and allows them to continue their road towards self- sufficiency.


Located in center city Allentown, the shelter has 20 apartments and offers a wide range of services for those in need. 

With your help, families with children experiencing homelessness who enter the shelter with so little can reside in a beautifully decorated apartment. Our goal is to raise $2,500 to help furnish and supply an apartment at the Sixth Street Shelter. Your donation will help purchase everything from bedding and furniture to kitchen and bathroom supplies. Funds will also help to supply the family with food and necessities for their apartment. 


This year’s Athletes C.A.R.E. “All-Or-Nothing Campaign” to support the Sixth Street Shelter of Allentown will last for 45 days. Please help us to reach our goal of $2,500 so that we can provide a wonderful apartment to families in need in the Lehigh Valley. Thank you for your support and as always, get out and care!
