We receive requests for help with hoarding situations. We first respond by saying that the Minnesota Hoarding Task Force does not offer services. Instead, we use our expertise and connections to help people find services that are available in the area. We can also suggest possible steps to take to improve the situation. If you have a question about a home situation, contact us by phone, email, or on our Facebook page. We keep details of such situations confidential.
We are working to consolidate resource lists for services such as therapists, cleaning companies, organizers, social workers, junk haulers, etc.
We are developing presentations and informational talks to be used at training sessions for requests that we receive.
Senior Linkage Line is a free service for Minnesota seniors. Seniors can ask questions about services in MN, get help filling out elder waiver and Medicaid forms, ask for referrals for services needed, and much more.
Seniors may also call with questions: 800-333-2433 Mon.-Fri. 8am-4:30 pm
Businesses who are registered with this service offer such help as moving, packing, cleaning, handyman, help with hoarding, and organizing.
It's not too late to join the group.
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 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.
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. Email: email@example.com
Contributions enable us to move forward on our Mission.
