Peninsula Community Services

Advocates for Peninsula residents suffering from a hoarding disorder

Welcome to Peninsula Community Services!

Welcome to PCS, San Mateo County’s only nonprofit advocating for those with compulsive hoarding disorders.

Due to our inability to obtain sustaining funds during 2013, the Peninsula Community Services Board of Directors regretfully announces the immediate discontinuance of the following programs previously provided in behalf of San Mateo county residents struggling with a compulsive hoarding disorder.

  • Professionally led and peer led hoarders’ support groups
  • Professionally led treatment and cognitive behavior therapy groups
  • Training and certification of professionals in the application of the harm reduction approach for persons struggling with compulsive hoarding disorders
  • Membership on the San Mateo County Hoarding Task Force


PCS believes that its experience in serving this client population over the past 35 years has amply demonstrated the need for these services and we sincerely hope that other organizations will emerge to fill the current service delivery gap.

In the meantime, PCS invites those interested in learning more about compulsive hoarding disorders to visit our informational website at
