I have been involved with FEGS for three years. I am always impressed by how they deal with their volunteers.... You are always told how much you are appreciated and given the proper amount of back up for the job you are doing for them. My only criticism is that they are a little too bureaucratic.....you have to go through too many layers to get a decision about anything. Too much red tape for a non profit org.

The competent and dedicated staff at F.E.G.S. provide a variety of services for individuals with all kinds of disadvantages. These services are easily accessible for consumers through the organization's various branches in the Greater New York area. In my experience, F.E.G.S. adheres to high work ethics and discipline, thus it is a great atmosphere to volunteer or work in. It is also dedicated to train student interns and strives to make the internship a valuable learning experience for them.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

clients' improved mental status.

Coming from the profit world I became an employee of FEGS 15 years ago. As a member of the management team I have had the opportunity to observe the wonderful services FEGS provides. Not to simplify but if i was asked to briefly describe what FEGS provides I would say that they "help people in need". In good times and bad they are there to serve. FEGS truly exemplifies a Health and Human Services organization. Be it health concerns, job training & assistance, counseling or assisting the challanged population, FEGS has a program available to assist. On a personal level the same assistance is there for employees in time of need. FEGS has become a huge organziation that has not forgoten its core values and goals, to assist people.

Ways to make it better...

I would like to become more involved in certain types of programs such as assistance to returning war veterans.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Functioning in the new world economy and becoming involved on more of an international level. With a new and progressive political climate in this country and world FEGS has a lot to offer.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Just continue what you are doing. Expand the services to a greater community.

I am a private consultant (fee-for-service) and have provided social work services for many organizations in NYC, and after almost of five years of association with F.E.G.S., am still regularly impressed with the various services provided and the quality. When I meet with a client and wish that a program existed to assist with his/her particular needs, I inevitably learn that F.E.G.S. has such a program. For example, I have a client on Disability who would like to work, but is afraid of history repeating itself and losing everything if he becomes psychiatrically unstable again, and knows he cannot manage the stress of long hours and little flexibility. Two e-mails later he was off to an orientation for others with the same issue. Another client of mine mentioned that she wished we had some sort of health-related group at the clinic to minimize issues related to metabolic syndrome, exacerbated by some of the medications our Clinic clients are on. One meeting with my supervisor and we started a Wellness Group right here a few weeks later. It's wonderful to be associated with such a client-centered organization such as F.E.G.S.

I have been involved in the FEGS "Suited for Work" program. We have provided appropriate interview outfits for a number of people who are trying to enter or reenter the job market. The look on their face when they are able to go home with a wonderful outfit, and the way they stand taller and prouder when wearing the cloths is amazing. The program is great and it is so rewarding

I have worked for FEGS for over 10 years and have worked for various capacities. I can truly say that this has truly been a most rewarding life experience. FEGS is committed to helping individuals attain self-sufficiency by assisting the hard-to-serve population with skills training and employment services. FEGS has afforded me the opportunity to extend its agency mission through the meaningful work that I and so many contribute day-to-day. The measure of its success is witnessed everyday when individuals report to work and are able to provide for their families. FEGS could benefit from engaging in more professional development trainings and strongly encouraging employees to obtain higher education.

The Great!

As a newly hired AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer, I seem to be continually amazed at all of the absolutely amazing programs and people within the greater FEGS Health and Human Services system. The number and diversity of people that FEGS helps is truly astounding and I am proud to be part of the team here at FEGS!

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

allievate a large majority of the poverty in NYC. I believe that FEGS is personally responsible for getting thousands and thousands of clients back towards independence, in whatever capacity that may be. More money would certainly increase efficiency.

FEGS has been so helpful. I am only a student intern, but I feel respected by all of the employees at FEGS. I know that they appreciate the work that I do and I have gained wonderful experience in these few short months.
