I have a very good relationship with my therapist in the FEGS clinic and they referred mre to manhattan IPRT program.They helped me with suggestions to deal with my medical problems too. I find the IPRT program invigorating and time goes fast, it activates my mind and keeps me going everyday. I have hope that things will be better in my life. I look forward to coming in here everyday. It's a clean facility and everything is run properly and in good control. I enjoy the com- raderie of my peers. The staff is very professional and treat people with respect and I find them very uplifting. I enjoy the yoga, brain-gym/cognitive skills groups and wellness groups and weekend planning group. I want to get back to work and I like that they help people get back on their feet and add more meaning to their life. I can't say enough positive things about this place.

Everyone on the program staff is nice and caring. I llok forward to coming to IPRT. We help each other and exchange ideas in the groups. The staff, interns and clients get along like a family. In IPRT we care about each other and the staff does its best to help us with our goals.

I've been working at FEGS for more than 25 years. I've also worked at several other nonprofit organizations. FEGS is definitely an excellent example of a superior Health and Human Services Agency dedicated to helping those in need. It's diverse staff reflects the make-up of it's clientele. The multiple services from rehabilitation to thereapy to employment is very challenging to manage effectively. The management and staff are committed to doing their best to fulfill the mission of the agency.

I enjoy coming to FEGS IPRT in the morning because the program works for me. FEGS has given me hope and endurance. The team of staff members has encouraged me today by helping me learn skills I need for a independent living goal in housing and the group counseling has helped me accomplish socializing and educated me to accomplish my future goals.

One of the greatest pleasures of my life has been the almost 50 years the Bleier family has been associated with F.E.G.S. Health and Human Services systems. While continuing to be a major factor in assisting New Yorks find employment and employment counseling and guidance, including supported employment, it has become a major factor in assisting those with developmental disabilities and mental illness. FEGS has done so with care and compassion. It has enriched the life of seniors with a program to support senior art and has be a partner with the New York City School system helping to prevent student dropouts and sponsoring 3 high schools, significantly improving graduation rates. FEGS helps over 100,000 New Yorkers each year and is the gold standard of care in each of the areas in which it operates. It is a true treasure to the people of New York.

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE Over the last year I've had the privilege to interface with FEGS and some of the most sensitive and caring professionals I've ever been exposed to. My daughter, Carol Hoverman (who is developmentally disabled) and my family have been working with these FEGS professionals to find support for Carol in a broad range of support services. As I'm sure you know, the challenges any family faces with a member with Carol's issues is immense and it takes an organization with the experience and genuine caring of FEGS to navigate the many minefields that this family dynamic presents. The FEGS organization and its incredible staff have sorted out the real issues, prioritized the many steps needed to advance Carol's case, followed through on EVERY detail this process requires, and most importantly have made Carol comfortable with the progress that is being made. I for one have been both impressed with the FEGS organization and for the first time in more years than I care to admit, am beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel for Carol's future well being.

I hold a MSc.Ed. degree and I have been an FEGS employee since October 2, 1979 and each year has been more exciting and special than than the previous one. I started by career at FEGS in the Business School as an instructor and Chair of the evaluation team. I worked with hundreds of consumers that the FEGS team prepared for competitive employment. I continued my work with refugees from the former Soviet Union by heading the Refugee Employment Project. Once again assisting thousands of newcomers to become citizens and productive members of their new society. I remained in the Employment Services Division as Program Director of countless employment initiatives. Once again in 2009 FEGS responds to the needs of consumers with comprehensive employment services for every population impacted by the serious and very severe downturn in the economy. FEGS continues to meet the needs of business and our society with a vision to imagine a better future. It has been my priviledge to be a partner in this mission for the past thirty years and hope to continue to do my part for FEGS and our society.
