Sanctuary faces another payless payday without funding

by Jolene Toves

Guam - Sanctuary is facing another possible payless payday next week as they have yet to receive any money from the government for the services they continue to provided to the island's troubled adolescents.  Executive director Millie Lujan tells KUAM News that officials had a meeting on Wednesday to discuss the outstanding and growing bill.

The organization is owed in excess of $150,000 but the Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center is disputing some of the costs.

Director Rey Vega says the department has agreed to pay $50,000 to cover some of the invoices for the current fiscal year but officials are waiting on a purchase order from the General Services Agency.

In the meantime the parties are working to iron out concerns about the cost to provide the services.  Lujan meanwhile says Sanctuary needs $56,000 t in order to make next week's payroll scheduled for Thursday.
