We educate the public and families about what hoarding is and is not. We would like to hear about community events that we can participate in with either a short presentation or by hosting a table with information to share.
We respond to requests for help with hoarding situations. The Minnesota Hoarding Task Force does not offer services. Instead, we use our expertise and connections to share information and options to be considered. If you have a question about a hoarding situation, contact us by phone, email, or on our Facebook page. We keep details of such situations confidential.
We are developing presentations and informational talks to be used at training sessions for requests that we receive.
CALENDAR: Guests are welcome at our monthly meetings. We usually include a short educational presentation by a member or guest at all meetings. Come to network and to learn.

Our mission is to support any person, family, friend or agency in Minnesota affected by hoarding through education, networking and connection to resources while promoting public health and safety.
We envision communities that implement best practices to support those affected by hoarding where individuals are supported with sustainable options while being treated with dignity and respect.
We are a volunteer group made up of professionals who work in various fields, as well as individuals who have a personal interest in hoarding. We welcome others to join us at monthly meetings, where we network, learn from each other, and move forward on our mission. We are in the process of applying for non-profit status. One of the ways we aim to educate the public is to simply define what hoarding and "hoarding disorder" are.
