Review for Federation Employment Guidance Service, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
