Since 1910, Tacoma Community House has promoted social justice and today offers equity-advancing programs through Immigration, Education, Employment, Advocacy, and Housing.


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 110 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 3,500 program services to 3,200 individuals from over 115 countries through our four core programs: Immigration, Education, Employment and Advocacy (for crime victims).

  • Our Mission:

    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.

    Our Vision:

    We are a pathway to change leading to generations of self-sufficient people and a region welcoming of immigrants and refugees.
