Addressing Hoarding – BEST OF Homes Within Reach 2015
Hoarding behaviors affect 2 to 5% of the population. What starts as an individual struggle with clutter can lead to deteriorating homes, public safety issues and homelessness. In this webinar, Hoarding Task Force members from Pennsylvania defined hoarding and discussed its impact on individuals, families, housing, neighbors, and the community. A discussion about interventions that aim to help the person who is hoarding, address housing quality, and maintain public safely concluded the webinar.
