Dear Potential Families First Employee,

Further down on this page you will find our current job postings. But first, we’d like to tell you why Families First is considered such a great place to work. Below, three current employees share what they like about working at Families First:

Mary Malloy, Primary Care and Chronic Disease Management Nurse (since 2008)
“I love that I get to spend as much time as a patient needs, as often as they need, to help them understand and cope with their diabetes. I love my colleagues, who inspire me to do the best I can for every patient, without judgment. I love that we look at a patient's insurance status only to figure out how to help them, not to determine whether we will help them.”

Cheryl Mosley, Front Office Coordinator (since 2004)
“I have great communication with my supervisor. I get to help patients – many patients try to get services and are surprised when they come here that we really are here to help them; it makes you feel good. Staff are great to work with; we are like a family. We’re very busy, so the day goes by quickly. My ideas are heard and sometimes implemented. We all try to work as a team."

Hilary O’Neil, Outreach and Family Center Coordinator (since 2007)
“Families First staff are very dedicated, compassionate and non-judgmental, and are a fun group of people. I love the variety of things I get to do in my job. And it’s wonderful to be able to offer things that are really needed, good and necessary services offered to people for the betterment of the whole community.”
