Who We Are

Thong Sontanasumpun (middle) has been an instructor with Tacoma Community House for 26 years. Here, she works with adults in an immersive English class.

 

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 108 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 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 100 countries through our four core programs: Education, Employment, Immigration, and Advocacy (for crime victims).
