In 2009, the City of Gloucester began a Hoarding Taskforce aimed at addressing the problem of hoarding among Gloucester residents. The overall goal of the Task Force is to link hoarders with needed information, resources, and appropriate referrals.
Since its formation, the Task Force has had representation from a wide variety of public and private social agencies and practitioners. The Gloucester Hoarding Taskforce meets on a monthly basis.
