The Neighborhood Center

Mission Statement

The Neighborhood Center strives to create a safe haven for children, encourage positive life choices, and promote and strengthen community relationships through education, leadership, and positive choices.

About The Neighborhood Center

For over 15 years, The Neighborhood Center (formerly St. Luke's Neighborhood Center) has served children and families in the Lehigh Valley.  Relying upon grants, fundraising, and corporate/individual giving, The Neighborhood Center provides programming to school-age children in Allentown, including pre-k classes, after-school programs, and summer day camps.  We aim to create a safe haven for children, encourage positive life choices, and promote and strengthen community relationships.  As our community grows and the number of students seeking our services increases, The Neighborhood Center continues to strive to expand its programs  and offerings to the community.  It is our mission to transform the lives of children, their families, and the larger Seventh Street community through education, leadership, and positive choices.
