Welcome to HDFA. We're glad you're here.
Chances are that if you have landed here you have somehow been touched by hoarding behaviours.
HDFA exists to provide compassionate, informed, collaborative supports and services for people who struggle with hoarding behaviours and their loved ones.
Our vision is to be the first stop for those in Alberta affected by Hoarding Behaviours to find education, resources and support.
To provide a trauma-sensitive response for people living with Hoarding Disorder through support groups and case management, by collaborating with relevant partners and services to establish safe spaces that support wellness.
We are committed to practicing and encouraging equity, diversity, and inclusion in all the ways we provide support, deliver services, work with volunteers, and conduct the business of the foundation.
We appreciate and embrace the variety of differences among people, including differences in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, culture, ability, and more.
We acknowledge and value these differences and are committed to creating an environment where everyone is respected, valued, and included.
We respectfully acknowledge that HDFA is currently and primarily located on Treaty 6 Territory, a traditional gathering place for diverse indigenous peoples including the Cree, Blackfoot, Metis, Nokota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, Inuit, and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community. We respect the sovereignty, lands, histories, languages, knowledge systems and cultures of First Nations, Metis and Inuit nations.
We truly believe that we can provide the most effective services and supports when we include all people of our diverse community.
