Do Your Part: Get Involved.
We often get asked, “How can I help?” Our answer is simple: You don’t have to get dirty and be present to assist with a hoarding clean-up. In fact, one of the best ways you can help is by staying right where you are. We need passionate people to spread awareness about hoarding disorder, then raise money to help contribute to more ethical and effective safety and cleanup efforts.
By reading this e-newsletter, you’ve already taking the first step toward promoting informed and ethical responses to hoarding across the country. Now, will you take a moment to go a step further? You can start getting down and dirty by rolling up your sleeves, using that laptop you’re holding, and joining us by taking part in one or all of the actions listed below.
Spread the word and enlist others!
Let your friends and family know what The Hoarding Project is doing. Start by following us on Twitter , liking us on Facebook and visiting our website.
Stop the Silence. Start the conversation
Share your personal or professional stories about your experience with hoarding. Because of the negative stigma attached to hoarding in society today, we know it takes courage and strength to speak out. Sharing your story can help to promote accurate, real-life experiences and reduce the stigma attached to hoarding in our media. Please help others know that they are not alone by sharing your story here.
Volunteering is the perfect way to feel connected to your community and support the mission of The Hoarding Project. The simple act of offering your skills and enthusiasm will positively impact the lives of others, as well as your own. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please let us know here.
Share Your Ideas
We at The Hoarding Project very much value the input of clients, families, professionals, and community members when it comes to making our work even better. If you have any ideas about how to make your community’s response to hoarding better, please share them with us here.
Add a Resource
Help us build a map and calendar of all the local resources created by, and for, or our supporters. Please share info here about existing organizations, agencies, task forces, and/or events supporting the education and responsiveness to hoarding in communities as we work to develop our site as an updated hub for these resources.
