The Dream of Becoming a Citizen
Our Immigration Department is expanding services to aspiring citizens in our local community thanks to a generous grant from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). We are one of 40 organizations across the country to receive this competitive grant award. The funding we received, totaling $250,000, will help support our citizenship preparation services for the next two years. With the USCIS funding, TCH will increase citizenship classes and locations in partnership with the Pierce County Library System, provide 265 permanent residents with citizenship instruction, and support 450 permanent residents with naturalization application services.
Those who are interested in attending FREE Citizenship Preparation Classes must attend a Citizenship Information Session. Information sessions are scheduled for Friday, December 6 at 10:00 a.m. and Wednesday, December 11 at 4:00 p.m. The information sessions will take place at Tacoma Community House. Please contact Yana Cosme, Multilingual Services Manager, for more information.
Creating Opportunities One Word at a Time
Read2Me is Tacoma's longest-running volunteer tutoring program focused on helping struggling young readers in the first, second and third grades. This program provides one-on-one mentorship for a struggling reader working to understand basic reading skills. Our volunteers are an integral piece in making Read2Me a successful program.
We are looking for dedicated volunteers to help emerging readers gain confidence and skills. We ask our volunteers to be willing to commit to tutoring for 45 minutes, one day a week throughout the school year. By making this small promise, you'll change the life of a child forever.
If you or someone you know are interested in volunteering, please contact Karen Thomas, Volunteer Services Manager, by email email@example.com or call 253-383-3951.
Become an Advocate for Immigrants
Tacoma Community House is proud to release our advocacy toolkit. We put together this toolkit not only to help bring clarity and understanding surrounding immigration in Washington State, but also to help you get to know the people whose lives are being directly impacted. We invite you to become an advocate for immigrants.
