INTRODUCING.. Our remote program facilitators, Kaden & Jennifer. Structured and unstructured hang out time with Torchlight Friends and staff. Social isolation is difficult. We believe it is important to keep connected with our Torchlight participants individually and as a group, via phone, video chat and zoom.
Work together, compete, cheer on your friends with games, puzzles, escape room challenges, online gaming, mad-libs, riddles and more!

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on everyone in our community. The imposed restrictions have limited the opportunity for our participants to socialize, engage in programming and maintain a daily routine. Increased social isolation is the direct result of these necessary restrictions. In response to this, Torchlight is pleased to
offer Virtual Programs. Our Virtual program team provides easy to access, inclusive, non-judgemental and fun programming as a means to decrease the sense of isolation and build up community and belonging again.
Our Virtual Program team assist and support our participants in resolving technical issues, basic education on how to access the online programs and provide program schedules and reminders via emails to caregivers and on our Torchlight Facebook page.
We value the input of our participants in the development of their programs and therefore, our virtual team tailors programming based on interests and abilities. In addition, our virtual team also provides the much needed 1-1 interaction (virtually) to provide more person-centred support and engagement.
Join our Virtual Programs to keep connected while staying safe!
