“All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we’re giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That’s one of the things that connects us as neighbors—in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver.”  -- Mr. Rogers

    Currently, Tacoma Community House is serving 109 Ukrainian individuals (estimated extended family members 315)  with English Language classes, Employment and Immigration services.

    In addition, these individuals need immediate financial support to meet daily, weekly and monthly household living expenses.

    To address this need, Tacoma Community House is initiating  a special Ukrainian Fund in order to provide Gift Cards to support an individual or family’s need(s).  TCH is also hiring a Ukrainian speaking Resource Navigator to further assist their needs and build community partnerships.
