Founded by Caregivers, Embraced by Employers

Torchlight was founded by Adam Goldberg, M.Ed. and is the culmination of years of professional and personal experience caring for family members with a variety of struggles and challenges. Prior to Torchlight, Adam’s professional journey led him to co-found the Goldberg Center with his mother, Leslie Goldberg, M.Ed., a nationally recognized expert in special education and special needs placement counseling for families.

For his entire life Adam has acted as a modern adult caregiver for family members at opposite ends of the age spectrum. As a young teen, he was an assistant caregiver for his aunt, who struggled with undiagnosed Autism Spectrum Disorder and other physical health problems. As an adult, he was unexpectedly thrown into caring for his aging father as the Goldberg family struggled to navigate the financial, regulatory, emotional and health complexities of eldercare.

Through these experiences, Adam began to see that caring for struggling children and elderly loved ones has similar challenges, complex decision paths and vast arrays of societal systems which must work together. He realized that many of the activities required to care for the entire age spectrum must be handled during the workday, unless an additional avenue is offered.

Out of this, Torchlight was born.
