Our solutions

A second full-time job. There’s no doubt that that’s what it has felt like trying to navigate the resources and treatments available to your child with special needs.

torchlight has been providing resources to make life easier for the modern caregiver because we understand, firsthand, the challenges that often exist when working with schools and others to get the right services for your child regardless of age or area of difficulty.

As our children mature, so do our elders. There's no handbook on how to make the best decisions for our aging loved ones. But now there's torchlight.

With our new product offering, we are addressing the concerns you find yourself having as you care for aging parents, family members, and friends. With torchlight, you have access to critical information that will support you in making the best decisions.
