How Does the Program Work?

Our community has many programs and services available to families. Knowing where to start, however, can often be complicated! The Care Coordination Team will help you navigate medical and mental health services to provide optimum care to your child. Family Resources Care Coordinators are here to help!

Integrated Health Home Program Staff

The staff in our IHH program are highly trained and ready to help our clients in any way they can.

Amber McGill, Admin Assistant/Business Performance Specialist

Amber is the Admin Assistant/Business Performance Specialist with the Pediatric Integrated Health Program. She started working with Family Resources in 2014. She loves coming to work everyday because as she says, she "works with the best team ever!" She's an English junkie, and says she's the friend who always corrects your text messages. A fun fact about Amber, she can speak in gibberish and knows all of her helping verbs. She says she's inspired by her children, because she feels they have made her want to be a better person, so that she can be a better person for them. You can contact Amber at amcgill@famres.org, to find out more about the program and how she can help your family.
