OUR PROGRAMS
Our programs aim to serve the homeless, those who are in jeopardy of becoming homeless, and those who are not able to receive services elsewhere due to lack of documentation (i.e. No ID, no phone, no address –or other limiting factors). We work to help them obtain the basic necessities to receive services.

OUR SUPPORTERS

“I prayed for something to happen, and my prayers were answered. I had no idea people were so generous; the staff and volunteers at TORCH made everything possible.”

Mr. Smith, Placed in Housing

“I called and they told me to come right in. They met me with a smile, told me to have a seat and looked me in the eyes. For the first time in a long time, I felt like a human being again.”

Kayla, Placed in Housing

“Everyone’s reason for being homeless are different. If it wasn’t for TORCH, I would probably still be homeless. Everyone falls on hard times so please pass it forward.”
