Rays of Hope Home gets design contract

Posted: Updated:

Guam - A design contract has been awarded for the Rays of Hope Home, but it doesn't look like repairs will be made before the end of the summer.  The design phase will take 30 days and then public works will have to draft another request for proposal for the actual repairs that need to be made to the home.

In the meantime, the children who were attending the Tamuning facility have been sent to classes at the JFK annex.  Mental Health officials have said they intended to send the kids to home schools after the summer, but concerns have been raised that the Department of Education is not prepared for that situation.

The Rays of Hope home cost more than a half-million dollars and officials are now looking to spend more than $250,000 in federal funds to make repairs to the home.
