Hope and Healing Guam moves on without executive director

Posted: Updated:

There wasn't much else for him to do. Hope and Healing Guam President Andrew Camacho confirms their executive director, attorney Michael Caspino, stepped down last summer.

Hope and Healing was established in 2017 in light of the clergy sexual abuse lawsuits.

Camacho tells KUAM Caspino stepped down when plaintiffs' attorneys opted for a different route for mediation and settlement.

Camacho reports the second part of their mission - to provide counseling and spiritual guidance for victims - continues to run smoothly.

As reported, the Church will be filing Chapter 11 reorganization - also known as bankruptcy - next Wednesday due to the clergy sexual abuse lawsuits.

Close to 200 lawsuits have been filed to date.

Camacho said he remains optimistic.

"I believe 2019 will be an important year as we close a very painful chapter in our history and work to make our church stronger," he said.
