Programs: Tacoma Community House believes education, understanding and opportunity are formidable weapons against poverty, illiteracy, and the challenges faced by refugees and immigrants. Programs offered at TCH include Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language classes, immigration assistance and citizenship preparation classes, job training, placement, and retention services, and social service case management in 30+ languages. Specific employment programs include Families That Work, Community Jobs, and Work Experience Project. We also offer a Youth Employment Program and language bank that offers translation services in over 35 languages.
Our education programs are supplemented by a one-on-one tutor program, which matches volunteer tutors with students who need extra help, specific vocabulary assistance, or whose schedules do not allow time for classes. We also have two state-of-the-art computer labs both at TCH mainsite and Swan Creek Library that offer computer based learning programs and internet access.

I was trained as a volunteer tutor for illiterate adults. This organization teaches adults to read, helps with citizenship, helps them get GEDs and learn how to be employable. It is a second chance and what America is all about.
