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.

I have been a Board member for over 25 years as was my father who served as President in the 70s. I am always amazed at the services our outstanding staff provides to an ever increasing number of consumers. The management continues to find new ways to help people in need.

I have been a donor to FEGS for the past 5 years in the form of providing scholarships to young people that FEGS has chosen that best embodied the requirements of the scholarships. The counseling, training and mentoring that FEGS provided these wonderful and remarkable recipients made a difference in their lives as they struggled through many hardships in their young lives. If it were not for FEGS these recipients would not have been as successful as they were. Thanks to the exceptional management and staff of this wonderful organization for fulfilling the hopes of these recipients and for perfectly fulfilling the intent of the scholarships I have been proud to give. I hope to be able to continue to provide FEGS with these scholarships in memory of a wonderful educator who would be equally proud of these recipients and of the works of this organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Our country's economy would experience at least a 10 fold return on this investment in the placement of people into jobs or careers they would most likely have not had the least bit of a chance.

The decision to move into Social Work, more a vocation, came after a 15+ year career in corporate marketing and public relations in Miami and New York. The corporate experience, although excellent, left me with the desire to give back - to be more involved, with ultimately a life of service being the primary motivation. A part of my professional/personal mission is to integrate the best of the corporate experience with a philosophy of service and a goal of creating an optimal environment where PEOPLE and SERVICE are the priorities. The FEGS Behavioral Health Division has helped to make that a reality. FEGS has provided the opportunity to integrate the best of the corporate model with a philosophy of service, keeping people a priority. FEGS successfully integrates the paradigm of care for the person with the practical realities of the modern world...these coalesce, creating a strong and vital organization poised to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

My mother has been working for F.E.G.S. for over 15 years, and through it all F.E.G.S. has made an impact on my life. Besides having a happily employed mother, I received a $1000 scholarship from them two years in a row for my undergraduate education at RPI. In addition, I was employed by F.E.G.S. for one summer through the Hillel CLIP program. The experience I had working with developmentally disabled people is one that I will never forget. The staff at F.E.G.S. are caring and hard-working people that deserve recognition. Thanks to the experience I gained working at F.E.G.S. and the scholarships they awarded to me, I got into a reputable school with some financial aid, and received my Bachelor's in Science in 2007. I received my Master's in Science this year, and am working toward a Ph.D in biomedical sciences. Although there are other contributions to my academic success, F.E.G.S will always stick out in my mind as one of the major factors.

I am proud to be employed by FEGS. I often tell people that I have grown-up in this agency. For the last 21 years I have worked in the Developmental Disabilities Division and I have been having a wonderful time. I began my work as a per-diem staff member in 1987, it is now 2009. I can not think of a better place to work, play, learn and continue to grow both as a professional and person. I am what we at FEGS refer to as a "Lifer". I am in it for the long haul.
