The mission of The Hoarding Project is to promote an effective, ethical, and sustainable response to hoarding in communities, through research, education and prevention, and collaborative approaches to treatment. We recognize hoarding as a complex mental health disorder that has significant influence on individuals, families, and communities and are committed to implementing appropriate responses at each of these levels.
