What we're about
Welcome to our Free Self-Help Group.
Hoarding can be a really tenacious problem—very difficult to overcome. Nevertheless, this group aims to help us gradually do the daunting work of changing both our habits and the state of our homes.
We are not professionals; this is an entirely peer-led project. Still, we have come up with a gentle, practical format that has actually helped many of us over time. Yes—over time. Our greatest successes tend to be those who stick with us religiously for at least a year.
To protect the anonymity of our members, we have chosen to be a private group. Upon joining the group, you will learn the exact location of our free weekly meetings in Midtown Manhattan.
To accommodate more members, we offer the weekly meeting twice each week: on both Monday and Wednesday evenings. When you plan on attending a meeting, please RSVP "yes" beforehand.

Seeking Free Space
Our meetings have always been offered free of charge, and—though we receive no funding—we intend to keep them free. This has meant using sub-optimal locations. Might you have a space we can use for a few hours each week?
Our needs are simple: A small room that can accommodate a table with about 10 chairs and access to a clean bathroom.
