Hoarding Resources

Compulsive hoarding is defined as the acquisition of and failure to discard a large number of possessions that appear to be useless or of limited value. Homes become so cluttered that tenant’s can- not live in them safely. Exits become blocked, kitchens and bathrooms become difficult to move around in and clutter becomes a fire hazard. Hoarding behavior can result in a tenancy termination.

Here are a few resources if you, a family member or friend is experiencing this challenge
