The Portage County Hoarding Task Force works with people age 60 and over to ensure in-home safety and mobility while respecting the individual's self-determination and personal needs. It is the collaborative effort of multiple agencies to meet the need for awareness and treatment of hoarding disorder in Portage County. We are an interdisciplinary group of professionals, students, county residents, and volunteers who seek to care for the mental health concerns of older people in our community.

The Portage County Hoarding Task Force strives to build connections with individuals struggling with hoarding through supportive and respectful intervention. Our services are free. We believe in a person-centered approach, meaning that we work alongside individuals in decluttering and go at their pace.

Mission Statement:

To provide a countywide resource for those individuals and communities affected by hoarding.

Vision Statement:

To provide person-centered support to Portage County individuals who hoard and their family members by addressing mental health and public safety risks, connecting people to resources, and providing support to cover gaps in services, while keeping the health, safety, and dignity of the individuals and families a priority.


We utilize the HOMES Multi-disciplinary Hoarding Risk Assessment during our initial visit.
