Homeless Prevention Program
What is Hoarding Disorder?
People living with Hoarding Disorder excessively acquire items and experience difficulty discarding possessions because of significant distress. People experiencing Hoarding Disorder may experience factors such as loss of space, social isolation, family discord, financial difficulties, as well as health and cleanliness issues.
Do you or someone you know struggle with hoarding and excessive clutter?
Our team of qualified social workers provide on-going support and services to individuals age 55+ at risk of becoming homeless due to Hoarding Disorder. According to the American Psychiatric Association, there is a prevalence of 2.6% in the United States, which increases for people over the age of 60.
Our team adheres to a person-centered approach that will meet each client where they are with services tailored to meet their unique needs. We aim to work with clients in a respectful and non-judgmental manner to build rapport and ultimately improve each client’s quality of life.
Each client enrolled in our program will receive support from a Clinician and a Case Manager, which will include:
- Mental health counseling
- Intensive case management
- Harm reduction approaches
- Resolution of eviction issues
- Declutter/cleanout services (No items will be discarded without the client’s explicit permission.)
Our team recognizes it may be difficult to reach out for assistance. However, we are willing to meet with each interested person to explore if our program may be a good fit and any possible ambivalence.
