Our Mission

To carry out our mission collectively and individually we need to be the community we want to build

Serving the Community for over 45 years!

TorchLight has been serving the community for over 45 years, since 1969. Throughout our history, we have been committed to supporting people of all ages, socio-economic and cultural backgrounds when they need a safe place to turn.

Our two main service areas are:

  • Distress Line / Call-In
  • CONNECT/ Call-Out
    • TeleCheck ~ Dufferin
    • TeleConnect~Guelph

A strategic focus for TorchLight is to conscientiously grow our volunteer population and heighten awareness of the scope of our services through all sectors of the communities in which we serve. Our unique 24/7 delivery of service is driven by highly trained, skilled volunteers from all walks of life, ranging in age from 18 to 70+ years.

Our main office is located in Guelph, Ontario, Canada although our office location is confidential to protect the safety and confidentiality of our callers, volunteers and staff members. Our TeleCheck ~ Dufferin service has been located in Orangeville, Ontario since 2005.
