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. There are information sessions scheduled for Wednesday, December 11 at 4:00 p.m and Thursday, January 9 at 3:00 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
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.
Those who are interested in tutoring must sign-up and attend a Read2Me orientation. The next orientations are scheduled for:
- Friday January, 10th from 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. at Manitou Park Elementary School
- Saturday January 25th 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Tacoma Community House
- Monday, February 3rd 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 pm at McCarver Elementary School
- Friday, February 21st 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Manitou Park Elementary
