Executive Director – Tacoma Community House

Tacoma Community House (TCH) presents a truly unique opportunity for a skilled and talented nonprofit executive director to lead services to our immigrant and refugee community through a most challenging time in their lives. TCH is the major organization serving immigrants and refugees between Seattle and Portland, OR. With its four core program areas of Education, Employment, Immigration Services and Crime Victim Advocacy, TCH provides a path for our new neighbors to build their lives in America.

The Executive Director will work hand in hand with the 22-member volunteer Board of Directors and the 50+ TCH staff to continue to shape the vision, mission and programs that will carry TCH into the future. TCH’s 2017 revenues were $4.2 million. More than 3,566 clients received direct services in 2017. More than 74% of those clients were born outside the United States.

TCH will move into a new building in late 2019 that has been funded through a major capital campaign and tax credit financing. The new building will provide double the capacity of program space that currently exists.

Tacoma Community House has been a catalyst for immigrants for more than 109 years. Its rich history and the richness of the people it has served have helped make Tacoma the wonderful and diverse community it is today. The new Executive Director will have the opportunity to help shape that richness long into the future, while honoring the past.
