Torres is more than just a place where people sleep. Torres is a comprehensive program where men, woman and families gain stability, income and housing. Our case managers help each adult address barriers like substance abuse, chronic health conditions and mental illness so they can recover their lives.


Last year Torres helped over 800 people. 800 people who would otherwise have spent the night on our streets; 70 families found refuge within our walls, and over 120 children.


Our men's transitional housing program provides a much needed alternative for an under served population.


Our rapid rehousing program helps families remain in their homes through a combination of case management, life skills training and financial assistance.
