DOVER, Del. (AP) - The state of Delaware is working to set up a task force to help residents with a hoarding problem.

As many as 45,000 people in the state are estimated to have problems with hoarding.

In advance of the hoarding task force, the state is creating an advisory panel to try to determine stakeholders who may be able to offer input into hoarding issues. The advisory panel is expected to begin next month and include police and fire agencies, local hospitals, code enforcement officials, the Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health and animal welfare officials.

Officials hope to develop resources aimed at helping agencies and organizations work with people who struggle with hoarding problems.
