HOMELESS individuals and families will be able to avail of basic resources such as health care, employment information, and job training, as well as civil legal and counseling services at the annual “Passport to Services” scheduled today at the Agana Shopping Center.

The most recent Point-in-Time (PIT) count organized by the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority and the Guam Homeless Coalition surveyed approximately 1,200 homeless individuals and families on Guam.

After the PIT count, GHURA and GHC will once again team up with health service providers, community organizations and local businesses to provide assistance, information or services to individuals and families at the “Passport to Services” event, which will be held at the Agana Shopping Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

During the last “Passport to Services” in May 2012, around 350 participants availed of the free services at the Tamuning Gym. At least 120 volunteers and 30 service providers, private sector organizations and businesses assisted at the event.
