In 2010, the Cape Cod Hoarding Task Force was established as an advisory group to help coordinate a multi-agency response to hoarding cases that come to the community’s attention. The task force is an all-volunteer group comprised of health agents, first responders, medical and mental health professionals, social service providers, attorneys, and private business owners who are committed to working together to resolve complicated cases in a compassionate, professional manner.
The group meets bi-monthly for case consultation and educational presentations on topics related to hoarding disorder. In addition, the Cape Cod Hoarding Task Force organizes semi-annual trainings for community members and professionals, develops relationships with like-minded task forces around the state, works with various media outlets to raise awareness in the community about hoarding, coordinates local agencies to implement joint service plans, and helps many local families.
Please note: the Cape Cod Hoarding Task Force is not a direct service provider. For consultation on local cases, please Contact us.
