Our Mission

The mission of the Third Street Center is to promote community through a multitenant, mixed-use facility that models sustainability in its design and practice. By providing long-term, affordable rental space, the Center brings together a diverse collection of nearly three dozen nonprofit organizations, artists and small businesses under one roof, leveraging their unique strengths. It offers them opportunities to work together more closely, creatively and efficiently to develop solutions for common problems facing the region and their clients. In sharing a home, the non profits are encouraged to share skills, talents and resources, enabling them to more effectively pursue their missions.
