Trinity Outreach Center of Hope (TORCH) is currently working to re-obtain their 501(c)(3) charitable status and we expect to have it before January 1, 2016.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist with daily operations. Examples:
- Answering the phones
- Making copies
- Putting together hygiene bags for homeless individuals
- Taking out the trash
- Working with our clients in the computer lab
- Helping a client fill out job applications
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR TUESDAY 1-4 WEDNESDAY 9-12 and FRIDAY 9-12. If you are interested in volunteering please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Sheila Michel at email@example.com or via phone 865-310-0130.
Also, you can attend a Quarterly Work Day. Once per quarter we pick a Saturday to work on the building. We paint, clean, and roll up our sleeves to get things done. If you’re interested in being on a mailing list to receive updates for the Quarterly Work Day please click HERE.

TOWELS: When a person is moved into housing many times they are missing those basic things we take for granted, like towels.
TRAVEL SIZED TOILETRIES/HYGIENE PRODUCTS: We provide travel-sized toiletries and hygiene products to clients who are in need of them.
FOOD: We are not a food pantry. We do not provide meals. We refer our clients who are in need of long-term food solutions to community pantries that exist to help them. However, many times our clients have to wait long periods of time for us to “work out” the details of their situation, so we do keep snacks and coffee on hand for these individuals/families. Examples of items we are always in need of: crackers, cereal bars, goldfish, and coffee/creamer.
BICYCLES OR AUTOMOBILES: Bicycles are given out when an individual doesn’t have a car, or in some cases a valid drivers license. The clients use this as their primary mode of transportation to their place of employment. Transportation is one of the largest barriers to self-sufficency, donated automobiles would go address larger family issues that can’t be solved with the use of a bicycle.
We work very closely with Second Chance Retail Store (134 Randolph Road) in Grove Center. If you have furniture, clothes or other items to donate please contact them directly 865-220-6500 for pick up!
