Don't hesitate to reach out to our Chicano nonprofit organization in Tacoma, WA, for the help you need to thrive. We'll take the time to talk to you and truly understand your story, thereby allowing us to make a personalized plan for your future success.

Our Purpose

ChEECo is committed to enriching and empowering US-born Latino and Chicano families; offering youth services and activities; preserving culture; and providing community services to Chicano or American-born Latinos.

About Us

ChEECo (Chicano Empowerment and Enrichment Coalition) operates as a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization committed to assisting Chicanos with a variety of public assistance services, including employment, training, apprenticeships, basic education, computer classes, Spanish classes, housing, and furthering education through college.

We are led by our CEO--Karoline Sanchez--who founded the organization in 2012. Karoline has always been passionate about community involvement, and so when she saw Chicano families and individuals falling through the cracks, she knew that she had to become part of the solution. She founded ChEECo to support American-born-and-raised Latinos who otherwise have few supports available to them.
