Guam - With construction work for the Rays of Hope home finally taking place, the community is anxiously waiting to see if the Department of Mental Health will be able to meet its January 15 deadline to have repair and renovations completed on time. Guam Legal Services Executive Director Harold Parker says he's hoping some resolutions will be made to not only the facility, but to the program, as well.

"Shortly thereafter, there will be a court hearing to see where we're at and hopefully come up with some plans for the future and see what's going to happen with the rays of hope and what's going to be done with the step-down house. That's what we're looking forward to the future with day treatment," he said.

The Tamuning facility suffered some damage due to natural disasters. Students were removed during the summertime to make way for renovations, but repairs weren't being made until recently.
