Scott launches AMC-wide ‘We Care Guide’

SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. — Scott Air Force Base recently launched the “We Care Guide,” a new online resource designed to connect Airmen to a list of resources that can meet their needs.

“In March 2017, Maj. Gen. Thomas Sharpy, Air Mobility Command deputy commander, gave his concurrence to press with the development of an ‘easy button’ that would reside on all personnel desktop[s] that literally puts resources one-click or touch away from assistance,” said Ivera Harris, AMC community support program manager.

The AMC Community Action Team selected the categories and charged Scott Air Force Base with building a template which can be easily replicated and standardized across all AMC bases.

Accessing the “We Care Guide” from their desktop, users are shown a webpage listing resources in 33 different categories, including family assistance, legal assistance and health services. The list of resources is available 24 hours a day on the link, accessible from most Scott workstations and via the MyMC2 app.

“The intent of this tool is for Airmen and their families to find the best resources for their needs, said Amy Uptergrove, 375th Air Mobility Wing community support coordinator. “It is also a tool that supervisors can use to assist their co-workers.

AMC offers many programs and services to support Airmen and their families. The “We Care Guide,” aims at eliminating frustration and when searching for particular resources.

“There are issues that are consistently at hand and impact every segment of our population: reducing suicides, sexual assaults, spouse abuse, child abuse, on or off duty safety, and other negative behaviors that impede mission readiness,” Harris said. “We constantly search for ways to address these issues. This tool is Airmen-tested and AMC Airmen say ‘the command hit the mark.’”
