Support Groups for People Who Hoard/Family & Friends

One of the services The Hoarding Project offers is a support group for family members and friends of people who hoard.

Our research has found that people who have loved ones who hoard are significantly affected by their hoarding behavior. These family members and friends may experience difficult feelings and emotions, like anger, sadness, guilt, resentment, and hopelessness.

Negative feelings like this can result in even more difficultly in relationships among friends and family. When it comes to also dealing with hoarding, this can be a very hard situation to be in without support.

Our groups offer the opportunity to talk about your experience, concerns, and hear how others in the same situation are coping with the hoarding behaviors of with their loved one.
