Edu-suruhanu visits Rays of Hope Home

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Education Suruhanu Dominic Terlaje visited the Rays of Hope Home today in Tamuning at the request of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse.  During the tour today, Terlaje says he simply provided input on what additional renovations would be necessary should the department intend to transform the rooms into legitimate classrooms. 

The home, purchased six years ago for more than $500,000, is falling apart-with holes in the flooring and roof. The elevator has never been operable and Public Health noted numerous safety violations in the home. Mental Health has identified federal funding to make more than $250,000 in repairs, but Public Works must first make an assessment and then the project will be put out to bid.
