Save the Date: May 13th Veterans Resource Fair at the Tacoma Dome

Join the 4th Annual community and volunteer driven Veterans Resource Fair at the Tacoma Dome.

Last year over 1,400 Veterans and their families attended this event and found local, state, and federal programs, some found jobs, some figured out how to go back to school, some found belonging, but everybody that attended found some type of help.
