FEDERATION EMPLOYMENT AND GUIDANCE SERVICE INC
October 28, 2009

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.
