The following excerpt is from : Supporting Someone Who Lives in Squalor - Squalor Survivors. There are several degrees of Squalor defined on this site to help you determine what kind of help you might need.
Below are links to Online support resources for friends and family of people who are living with hoarders.
Overcoming Hoarding Together. For people who are in a personal relationship to others who have hoarding disorder. Giving family/friends a place to interact, normalize what they are feeling, and offer education, enlightenment, and encouragement. This group is under the guidance of a licensed marriage and family therapist. Membership is limited to adults.
Mates-of-Messies. Do you live with a messy person and it is interfering with your life? How can you encourage that person to change? How can you support that person if they want to change? Get support from others who are in the same situation.
Children of Hoarders group. For the Adult Children of Hoarders(COH) who grew up in a hoarders home and/or have a parent who still hoards. (Spouses of COH welcome too!) This is a place to connect with others who can relate for support, venting, education and awareness. There are life experiences and support from others who understand. We do not provide therapy but rather a place to connect with others. This group is for those over 18 yrs. of age.
