The Cuyahoga County Hoarding Connection's mission is to educate the community about the need for a coordinated effort of personnel from local government, mental health and social service agencies to effectively help individuals who hoard and those working with individuals who hoard.

Our goal is to identify responders, resources and personnel throughout Cuyahoga County, and to educate and train them about the characteristics of hoarding. We promote a comprehensive approach to helping individuals who hoard, while protecting the safety of responders and the community.

More than 20 organizations from the public, nonprofit and private sectors are working together as the Hoarding Connection of Cuyahoga County.
