Tacoma Community House creates opportunities for immigrants and other community members in the Puget Sound region through comprehensive services focused on self-sufficiency, inclusion and advocacy.
Tacoma Community House is a nationally-respected, community-based service center for immigrants, refugees, and long-time South Sound residents seeking enrichment and pathways to self-sufficiency. For 107 years, we have helped countless individuals gain the skills they need to transition out of poverty, navigate a new culture, and find personal and professional success.
Many people come to us seeking one type of service and end up discovering and utilizing others, making us one of Tacoma’s most unique "one stop shops." Annually, we provide 3,800 program services to 3,500 individuals from over 103 countries through our four core programs of Education, Employment, Immigration and Advocacy.
I hired this organization to do diversity training for library staff - the workshop was very well received. I also asked them to do a similar, shorter program for no fee and they were happy to help - this program was also well received. They're well organized, spend their resources effectively, and do great work in our community!
