Tacoma Housing Authority

The Tacoma Housing Authority's mission is to provide high quality housing and supportive services to persons and families in need. We try to do this in ways that get two other things done. First, we want people we house to succeed not just as tenants but as "parents, students, wage earners and builders of assets."​ Second, we want to help Tacoma develop and to help ensure that it has room for households of all types and incomes. We seek to make Tacoma "safe, vibrant, prosperous, attractive and just."​ Our status as a Moving to Work (MTW) housing authority and a public development authority help us do this. We do this work in four main ways.

First, THA develops housing. THA seeks to create communities that serve a range of needs and that are financially sustainable, environmentally innovative, and attractive.

Second, THA rents its apartments to households in need. We seek to maintain our properties so they are attractive and enjoyable places to live.

Third, we help people afford rent for apartments or homes that they lease from private landlords.

Fourth, THA also provides supportive services. These serve people who need help to succeed as tenants. Elderly or disabled persons, for example, may need help to live on their own. Families coming from homelessness or domestic violence may need help to stabilize. Moreover, we seek to help families prosper. We help people increase their earned income. We help children succeed in school. We help families build assets.
In these ways, THA seeks to serve its communities.

We are a Board of five volunteers and a staff of about 135 people. We do our work with many partners, both public and private. THA's statement of values conveys our belief that this work in service to others is "honorable"​ work. We mean to do it "honorably, effectively, efficiently, with pride, compassion and respect"​. We invite you to learn more about us and our work. We hope this site helps you do that.
