The mission of The Hoarding Project is to change our culture’s understanding about hoarding behavior through research-informed therapy, education, and professional collaboration.
The Minnesota Hoarding Project (MHP) was established in late 2009, by Jennifer Sampson, a marriage and family therapist and doctoral student in the Family Social Science Department at the University of Minnesota.
