Support for Professionals

The number of professionals and agencies that become involved in hoarding cases is growing daily. Professionals and agencies likely to be involved include, but are not limited to, Adult Protective Services, Disaster Recovery Specialist, Elder Law and Housing Attorneys, Public Health, Building Inspector, Case Managers, Child Protective Services, Council on Aging, Fire Department, Home Care Workers, Housing Authority, Police Department, Professional Organizers, Property Management, Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Public Health, Resident Service Coordinator, Senior Center, Social Worker, Therapist, Visiting Nurse, etc.

With ever increasing numbers of hoarding cases being reported, along with the complicated and multi-faceted nature of hoarding disorder, professionals and agencies can be easily overwhelmed. In some areas, hoarding is the primary issue of up to 25% of Adult Protective Services’ caseloads with the majority of hoarding cases reported overall being in supportive/subsidized housing. With evictions and reports of property damage, injury, and death related to hoarded homes on the rise, it is more important than ever to be able to identify and intervene as early as possible to protect property, communities, and individuals.

While we all want to be compassionate and empathetic, hoarding cases are complicated, time consuming, costly, and frustrating to manage, especially if that is not your professional or agency role or expertise. Most communities have limited to no access to specialists able to act as a mediator between property management and the resident, develop plans for resolution with both parties best interest in mind, manage a crisis case through resolution, and provide the mental health support/coaching necessary for the best opportunity for success and maintenance of results.

In order to efficiently and effectively resolve a hoarding case, a multidisciplinary collaborative approach is essential. The most successfully managed cases are those that have experienced professional guidance, education, and support. That being said, having access to these resources and support is often difficult due to geographic and financial barriers.

As a member of The Clutter Movement, you will be guided by Marnie Matthews, MSW, LICSW, a trained and experienced mental health and crisis case management professional that specializes in all areas of clutter, hoarding behavior, hoarding disorder, and crisis case management. Under Marnie’s guidance, professional and agency members will have access to the following supports and resources:
