The MyCOHP Initiative for Tweens, Teens, and Students

 

The MyCOHP Initiative of COH, Inc. was launched in 2018 to serve the interests of Minor and Youth Children of Hoarding Parents. We seek to illuminate the difficulties children may suffer growing up in hoarded homes, to promote awareness, interventions, resources, and policy tailored to the needs of minors. We believe the long-term interests of family members align and better alternatives are possible.  Existing resources have arisen to serve the needs of individuals with HD and adult COHPs.  This initiative is dedicated to the interests of children less able to advocate for themselves.

The first project created by the initiative is the MyCOHP Online Peer Support Group for Minors and Youth, launched in late 2018.  The Voices of COHPs project launched shortly afterward in 2019.
