Tacoma Community House Hiring Executive Director

Tacoma Community House (TCH) — a 109-year-old nonprofit in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood — presents a truly unique opportunity for a talented Executive Director to join our team and spearhead services which empower immigrants, refugees, and low-income community members of Washington’s South Sound.

Through our four core programs of Education, Employment, Immigration, and Crime Victim Advocacy, TCH provides a pathway for New Americans and U.S.-born citizens to build stabler lives for their families. TCH’s dedicated team of 45+ staff members helps adults from over 100 countries learn English, improve their basic skills, earn GEDs, apply for jobs and internships, navigate the complex U.S. immigration system, and access life-saving services as victims of crime.
