Guam - While the Department of Mental Health says the repair and renovations to the Rays of Hope Home in Tamuning may not be completed until the end of the week, Guam Legal Services executive director Harold Parker says he's just relieved that work is getting done. Mental Health was give until today to have all fixes completed, but agency director Wilfred Aflague says there's still some minor work that's left.
Parker says he's happy to hear that students may soon be back to the more permanent facility. "I had my doubts when they said they were going to be done by today, but I was hoping they would," he told KUAM News. "But the director has been explicit that it would be done by the end of the week and that it would be the Rays of Hope program as well as the Rays of Hope building. And we're very pleased to hear that.
"He has now said that more than once, so I feel reassured that he will follow through with that as promised."
Aflague told KUAM News that the facility will house students under the Rays of Hope program, which includes daytime treatment and the educational component.
