The director of an organization that helps homeless families in Oak Ridge and Anderson County will discuss homelessness during a Monday morning program in Oak Ridge.
Anthony “Andy” O. Quinn is executive director of TORCH, or Trinity Out-Reach Center of Hope.
Besides homelessness, Quinn will also discuss TORCH during the Monday program, which starts at 11 a.m. January 4 at the Jewish Congregation of Oak Ridge, which is at 101 West Madison Lane. The program is presented by the Women’s Interfaith Dialogue of Oak Ridge.
Quinn, who has 15 years of experience in working with homeless populations, was previously the Homeless Service Program manager at Helen Ross McNabb Center in Knoxville. He moved to the Knoxville area from Athens, Georgia, where he worked as a team leader at a homeless shelter, a press release said.
The Women’s Interfaith Dialogue brings together women of diverse faith, color, and culture to explore, understand, and learn from one another for the purpose of advancing justice, compassion, friendship, and human rights with a focus on women and children. As one of the avenues for fulfilling its mission and purpose, Women’s Interfaith Dialogue offers monthly programs on related issues during the school year, excepting December and June. All programs are free and open to the public.
