Giving Overview

It is estimated that up to 5% of the US population – over 10 million Americans – exhibit hoarding behavior – and that’s ONLY ONE of the many issues that complicate the lives of people affected by chronic disorganization (CD).
Research shows that excessive clutter and disorganization can be symptoms of a larger health problem. Some common causes are;
  • ADHD
  • Brain injury
  • Memory issues
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Emotional trauma, and
  • Grief
These challenges often prevent people from getting organized and may lead to an abundance of clutter.
Quality of life is negatively affected on a daily basis.
ICD is the leader in providing support for individuals and the research community worldwide regarding CD.
As a non-profit 501(c)(3) this valuable work is done thanks to our dedicated subscribers and donors.

  • Provide education for professional organizers and related professionals which will benefit people living with CD
