It Takes Many Hands

to build a house, but it takes a community to make it a home.

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 a 501(c)3, tax exempt organization in Oak Ridge working to ensure every family in Anderson County has a safe place to sleep.

    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.


    Applewood Apartments:
    Representatives from TORCH, ADFAC, United Way, Ridgeview and others have all come together in a team effort to look for ways that we can assist the residents at Applewood. Over the next month we will be talking to those at Applewood who are seeking help and seeing if we can come up with creative solutions to their needs. As we do so we will be asking for help from the community, churches and volunteers. We are hoping to connect a person with a need with someone who can fill that need. In the coming weeks we are expecting that we will need groups of volunteers with trucks to help people move and volunteers that speak fluent Spanish. If you would like to volunteer please send an e-mail to circlesoflight@oakridgetorch.org
