Guam - Non-profit organization Guma Mami may have been able to pay its 25 employees on Friday evening, but according to executive director Bernie Grajek, the Department of Mental Health still owes them about $60,000. Guma Mami was supposed to pay its employees last Monday, but they didn't receive a check from mental health until Friday.

A check was cut totaling over $40,000 late last week. Guma Mami is facing a similar situation as Catholic Social Service, which is also owed by the Government of Guam. The organization provides residential and community service for adults with developmental disabilities and serious mental illnesses.
