Resources for Working with Individuals with Hoarding Issues
In Montgomery County, it is our goal to improve the health, safety, and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) individuals/identities. We know that the LGBTQ community is a thriving group that has unique health needs that must be addressed. According to the Welcoming Project, estimates from 2011 indicate that over 9 million American adults identify as LGBTQ. They represent diverse ages, racial and ethnic backgrounds, religious convictions, and belief systems, as do their allies.
