King/Pierce County Hoarding Task Force

Please join us for our monthly meeting every 3rd Tuesday morning of each month. Please visit our Google + page for more information on our upcoming events!


We are a multi-disciplinary collective in King and Pierce County aimed at promoting a compassionate and research-based understanding of Hoarding Disorder.
We are committed to working with people who hoard; their families, friends and animals; communities; and service professionals, through education, collaboration, and advocacy for change.
We will work to develop and implement long-term, sustainable solutions for hoarding-related problems so that families can remain in their homes in safe and healthy ways.


We envision a stigma free culture of engagement in King and Pierce County in which every person who is affected by Hoarding Disorder has ready access to an affordable, quality, and comprehensive team of knowledgeable and compassionate professionals who are well-trained to work with them in a supportive environment.

What Makes Up The Task Force?

Our task force is made up of a variety of professionals, including mental health professionals, law and code enforcement, emergency responders, protective services (animal, adult, child), professional organizers, cleaning companies, the health department, housing officials and representatives and many more!
