Direct Support Professional of the Year

awarded to Melanie McGill, House Manager

from NC Providers Association

April 2014

Melanie joined WNC Group Homes in 2008 and quickly endeared herself to the residents she serves with her warm caring personality. Right from the start, she has been a tireless advocate for her residents, serving as their voice and speaking for things they both need and want. She looks for and arranges special one-on-one activities such as drumming classes, cheerleading, drama classes, music therapy and various Special Olympics sports.

In addition to having established an excellent rapport with all the parents of her residents, Melanie cares about the other direct support professionals she supervises. Everyone knows she can be counted on when the going gets rough. She'll be right there helping out.

Help us provide summer activities

During the summer months, our residents have the opportunity to go places and engage in activities which are not available to them during the rest of the year. For example, some residents attend summer camp ($1,725 per person), while others participate in group day-trip outings.

We appreciate each contribution toward the cost of these activities.
