The Statewide Steering Committee on Hoarding, the Local and Regional MA Hoarding Task Forces and MassHousing invite you to one of four regional Hoarding Risk Assessment Training Meetings to be held in March 2010.

Hoarding continues to be a challenging issue for public health and safety, the courts, housing managers, clinicians, social service professionals and others. It is a complex problem that requires inter-disciplinary solutions.

Members of the Statewide Steering Committee on Hoarding will introduce the HOMES® Multi-disciplinary Hoarding Risk Assessment. Each meeting will also feature hoarding presentations by Dr. Christiana Bratiotis, BU School of Social Work, Jesse Edsell-Vetter of the Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership and/or Cristina Sorrentino, PhD, LICSW. There will also be an opportunity for updates and networking within your region.
