The Northern Colorado Clutter Task Force is a team of government agencies, community groups and relevant businesses united to identify and reduce hoarding behavior in Fort Collins and surrounding communities.

Our Mission-

To identify and respond to incidences of extreme clutter in Northern Colorado through interagency coordination, thereby increasing public safety and providing educational opportunities and enforcement services to community partners.

Our Vision-

The Northern Colorado Task Force envisions a reality where agencies cooperate to identify best practices, share resources and provide comprehensive personalized services to individuals struggling with hoarding tendencies.

 Our Goals-

  • Increase interagency awareness of cluttered residences
  • Reduce the number of cluttered residences

  • Identify best practices for addressing individuals who engage in hoarding behavior

  • Foster a spirit of innovation in regards to community responses to clutter

 How We Work-

  • The task force receives a referral from a partner agency (through the form below.)
  • We make contact with the resident suffering from clutter and assess their needs.
  • Based on that, we connect the resident to necessary services to make their home safe.   
    • Cases are prioritized according to  the motivation of the resident and their willingness to work with us as well as level of clutter and safety concerns.

 

Note: This service is available to residents of Fort Collins and surrounding communities.
