I have worked for Fâˆ™Eâˆ™Gâˆ™S for over 12 years, and have been fortunate to work in different offices and different programs. For 7 years I worked for a wonderful woman, Gladys Siff, Senior Vice President, and one of the many things she was responsible for was being the Inspector General. In her capacity as Inspector General, she interacted with every division within the agency. During that time I was able to get to know most of what the agency does and how the different divisions work. The common denominator between all of Fâˆ™Eâˆ™Gâˆ™S is the goal to treat each person we serve with dignity and respect, while providing the services they need, no matter what service they need. On a daily basis, that goal is overwhelmingly met. I now work for another wonderful woman, Kathy Rosenthal, Vice President, Family Services and Long Island Regional Operations. Working with Kathy has given me the opportunity to see yet another side of Fâˆ™Eâˆ™Gâˆ™S. I have learned so much about the many different programs that are offered here. My co-workers often go above and beyond what is expected. If there is a need, they try to meet it and often come up with creative ways to do so. I can see the joy on the faces of those who are receiving assistance as well as on those who are giving it. It’s nice to know we make a difference. Fâˆ™Eâˆ™Gâˆ™S continues to look for ways to serve the community. New programs are introduced as the need arises. Fâˆ™Eâˆ™Gâˆ™S is in constant motion, changing when necessary and yet is a constant in the community.
