The Tacoma City Association of Colored Women's Club, Inc (Tacoma CWC) is a non-profit organization established exclusively for charitable service. The Association's mission is to promote and improve health, education, economic and cultural awareness so that lives and relationships are improved and the quality of the community is enhanced.
Since 1944, the Tacoma CWC has assisted women and families through educational endeavors, civic organizations, and social functions. The club was founded on three guiding principles:
- Help Those in Need
- Hold Ourselves Accountable
- Take Ownership
Through the support and community involvement of citizens, leaders, and organizations, the Tacoma CWC continues to support and deliver programs that allow citizens to build skills and resources that strengthen and promote the community and sustain such efforts over time.
The Tacoma City Association currently hosts four active clubs: The Asberry Culture Club, The McCabe Twenty Club, the Matrons, and the Future Sevens. Together, these clubs operate the Association's clubhouse and community center located at 2316 Yakima Avenue in Tacoma, WA.
