The In-Home Support and Hoarding Intervention & Treatment teams have been busy the past few months! While serving clients, the team has been doing outreach events to speak to the public and educate them on the needs of the population they primarily serve.

In November, Garrett and Elizabeth spoke on Hoarding with staff and interns at the Bread of Healing clinic. Garrett and Carla also spoke on Hoarding with the Waukesha Aging and Disability Resource Center's team, who handles cases of abuse and neglect for seniors and disabled adults.
