Children of Hoarders

Can you imagine growing up surrounded by trash that you weren’t allowed to throw away? What about being too ashamed by the way your home looks to have friends over? Or growing up in the 90’s without working indoor plumbing?

Unfortunately, for children of hoarders, this is the reality of their childhood.

Homes of hoarders contain tons of safety hazards and are unsafe for anyone, let alone children, to live in, but people who grew up with hoarder parents often say the emotional scars are worse.

Fortunately, children of hoarders are now able to find support from each other online. Here are some online resources where children of hoarders can meet, share stories and support each other.
