Project Karinu not billing for services

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Project Karinu may currently provide free services to promote social, emotional, and behavioral development for young children, but according to SAMSHA federal officers, may need to look into sustainability for the future.

Federal project officer Michelle Herman told KUAM News, "At this point, Karinu is offering services without billing families, but that won't be able to continue once the federal funding is gone, so there's got to be some planning done on how to maintain this, how to continue providing services."

Herman says the six-year program's $9 million grant will expire in three-and-a-half years. Herman hopes Karinu will continue providing excellence service by collaborating with the collaboration of the Department of Mental Health and the Department of public Health.
