The Daily Record:
- April 7, 2013 - "Hoarding hits home: Sandy blew the lid off a New Jersey epidemic." (There is a comment thread about this article on Children of Hoarders Inc.'s Facebook page that might be worth a look.)
- April 8, 2013 - "Hoarders take toll on families: Relatives must often step in, seek assistance." (There is a comment thread about this article on Children of Hoarders Inc.'s Facebook page that might be worth a look.)
- April 8, 2013 - "Superstorm Sandy blew the lid off hoarding trend." (A condensed version of the April 7th Daily Record article.)
While I'll quibble with the headline characterizations of hoarding as an "epidemic" or as a "trend," the reporter, Lorraine Ash, did a pretty good job addressing the subject. Importantly, all of the articles include quotes from a few children of hoarders, including ChildrenOfHoarders.com spokesperson, Elizabeth Nelson. I particularly recommend the April 8th Daily Record article, which focuses on family impact.
This is a well done article that captures some of the most critical issues at hand.
