About Our Auction

The proceeds of this year's auction will be directed to the Hoarders' Program. A number of services are required to deal with this issue that affects the entire family.

FSA understands hoarding to be a growing problem. An increasing number of people of all ages are indicating a hoarding life style at Triage/Intake.

It is our hope to offer the clinical services required with a focus on trauma, grief and loss counselling that is frequently the trigger that sets the hoarding process in motion. We also need to implement “at home” counselling to enable our clients to rid themselves of the items they are intent on hoarding.

Our professional De-Clutterer, has experience in dealing with clutter and hoarding challenges. The objective is to provide counselling to help deal with the mental health issues, as well removing clutter allowing the recapture of living space and creating order and peace within the home.

To date, the overwhelming majority of clients presenting with hoarding issues, identify the ability to start eliminating the clutter as a major hurdle to moving forward. At-home-assistance coupled with therapeutic therapy, will help alleviate the problem for the client

Family Service acknowledges the current fentanyl crisis and its impact on families. Awareness of the signs of overdose, symptoms and general facts about fentanyl is a step in the fight to prevent needless deaths.
