Passport to Services ready to help Guam's homeless

Posted: Updated:

Set to provide free services to Guam's homeless or those at-risk of becoming homeless Tony Cruz, Community Employment Coordinate for the Department of Veterans Affairs invites all in need to tomorrow's Passport to Services: VA Stand Down.

Working with the Guam Homeless Coalition, he says it's a "one-stop-shop" to help Guam's homeless community get back on their feet.

"Majority of our homelessness is here in the capital, and we're going to provide like a job center, with the Department of Labor, American Job Center," he said. "We have Sanctuary, Salvation Army, we also have the VA that's here to support the Veterans that are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. We also have a lot of nonprofits and state agencies, as a matter of fact we also have free haircuts and also we're giving out immunization shots."

Food, and refreshments will also be provided.

The event runs from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Chamorro Village Festival Huts.

Homeless clients can access free bus services to Hagatna from the Dededo Mayor's Office at 8 a.m., and 9 a.m. from Tamuning.
