The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund an evidence-based program, Buried in Treasures, that will help women 35–55 years old with hoarding behaviors. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the best way to treat Hoarding Disorder in the community. The proposed program will be located at Mariposa Women's Center and funded by a Promoting Innovation grant by the California Wellness Foundation.
The primary goal is to help people with Hoarding Disorder while utilizing web tools and newer technology in an evidence-based program. The objectives are to increase quality of life by 20% and knowledge by 30% and to reduce the amount of items acquired. If funded, this structured program will decrease hoarding behaviors and improve mental health. The actual submission of the application was not a requirement of the thesis project.
