Sanctuary seeks alternative ways to remain open

by Krystal Paco

Guam - Sanctuary and its staff have resorted to doing lunch plate fundraisers and free online fundraising to help generate enough money to keep its doors open.

Sanctuary was paid all the way up to December but only half of what was invoiced. 

As we reported the Behavioral Health and Wellness Center is questioning why the costs for the care of adolescents increased. 

Sanctuary has said there was never any contract in place and that the cost to provide the services increased significantly. 

The organization is the only accredited facility in the region capable of providing drug and alcohol treatment for adolescents and young adults. An email from sanctuary states that it continues to face financial hardships and struggles every day to keep its doors open.
