Due to COVID 19, our Task Force business meetings are now being held virtually.
Our next meeting will be on Thursday, June 3rd, 2021 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM. This meeting we welcome a presentation from Carla Alejo, the Director of Hoarding Intervention and Treatment at Catholic Charities as well as Chair of Milwaukee County Hoarding Task Force. After years of the noticeable lack of resources for those suffering from Hoarding Disorder, Carla was instrumental in creating an integrated Hoarding program that has shown to result in success. Her passion is advocating for those who are underserved and slip through the cracks.
If you would like to join our monthly business meetings (virtually on your computer or by dialing in on your phone), please email your request to MNHTF.email@example.com and you will receive an invitation. The Task Force meets on the first Thursday of the month to conduct business of the group, network with members and visitors, and to share resources and upcoming events.
