About KHTF

We are the Kalamazoo Hoarding Task Force (KHTF).
We provide information about hoarding, otherwise referred to as hoarding disorder.
We want to help lift people out of the hoarding cycle by coordinating community professionals and addressing
all aspects of the disorder: emotional, social, and physical well-being.
Find out what information is currently available in Kalamazoo County.

No funds guaranteed. Limited resources available.

Our Mission

To Inform

We are a new group, comprised of over 15 different representatives, agencies, and programs. We want to help people gain an understanding about hoarding. We are finishing a booklet of general information about hoarding: available for download soon. Education is necessary when it comes to hoarding. Please check back at kalamazoohoarding.org for updates.

To Help

We help people touched by the cycle of hoarding. We coordinate with professionals in our community to find the best resources to help address the emotional, social, and physical aspects more easily. Unfortunately, we don’t provide direct services yet. We have limited resources with no current funds. If you feel you could help change this please contact us.

To Start Conversation

Hoarding is not as uncommon as you might think. Conversation about hoarding creates awareness to the community, and in turn, creates more information on how to handle the situation, as the need for information is increasing. Experts will agree that the more awareness about hoarding, the more help will become available. Start talking today.


A huge thank you to our current donors! We are always looking for more donors to help develop hoarding services in our community. Contact us below if interested.
