No address. No transportation. No ID. No birth certificate. No social security card.

Homeless individuals have many barriers to self-sufficiency. We assist them in overcoming those barriers.

    WELCOME TO TRINITY OUT-REACH CENTER OF HOPE
    (TORCH)!

    We are an emerging 501(c)3, tax exempt organization in Oak Ridge that is using intensive case management to help homeless individuals on their journey to self-sufficiency. We also provide supportive services to all community members, such as life skills,  adult literacy-including GED/HSE/ ESOL and computer literacy, life coaching, job searches and resume creation.

    We are undergoing some changes as we work toward expanding service throughout Anderson County.  Expect changes to our website.

    Mission

    To invest in and support the holistic transformation of the economically disadvantaged in our community as they pursue self-sufficiency.

    Vision

    To become a community center where healthy, hopeful, economically independent, self-sufficient citizens work to help and encourage others to break the cycle of poverty.
