FEGS Health & Human Services
FEGS Health & Human Services was born out of the Great Depression, when millions of Americans were struggling to provide for themselves and their families. FEGS, which stands for Federation Employment and Guidance Service, was established in 1934 to combat discrimination in the workplace and to help New Yorkers prepare for and find jobs. Since then, the organization has evolved into one of the largest health and human services agencies in the country, expanding and diversifying to meet the many needs of the community. Far more than an employment agency, the organization now serves as a safety net for individuals and families, providing a wide range of services that allow people to live healthy, fulfilling, and productive lives.
