"Their" is a possessive form of "they". He -> his; she -> her; they -> their.
Example: "This is their car."

"They're" is a contraction of "they are".
Example: "They're going to school."

"There" is an adverb to talk about a place that's far from the speaker. It's the opposite of "here".
Example: "I moved to the United States and lived there for five years."

"There" can also be used as a pronoun to introduce the subject of a sentence.
Example: "There's a loud noise outside."

If you refer to pronunciation, they are pronounced the same.

Well, it is different by its meanings. For example:
1) Their : I promised to help with their homework 
2) They're ( they are) : They are twins 
3)There : I need to go there later or It's my home there
