Guam - Catholic Social Services is taking immediate action in its efforts to reduce the number of homeless people on Guam. CSS Executive Director Cerila Rapadas says they are currently eyeing property in the Yigo area to construct a new facility to care for the islands homeless.

Rapadas says the details are still preliminary, but does say that they are confident in building their own facility.  "We have been leasing out place to place and sometime we cannot accommodate more in the place that we are leasing out, so hopefully when we get settled in that it will expand and then we'll be able to except whoever comes to our doors that is homeless," she told KUAM News.

Rapadas says the shelter will be in addition to the Guma' San Jose facility in Dededo.
