Minnesota Hoarding Task Force


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.

About the Task Force
We are an all volunteer group of professionals and individuals who work in various fields or have a personal interest in hoarding. We welcome others to join us at monthly education and business meetings, where we network, learn from each other, and move forward on our mission to support anyone in Minnesota affected by hoarding.
What Does the Task Force Do?
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.
