What We Do

FEGS delivers a network of high-quality, cost-efficient, outcome-based services in the areas of Health • Disabilities, Home Care, Housing, Employment • Workforce, Education • Youth and Families. A robust infrastructure and sophisticated technology platform are integral to the FEGS system of care, and to our leadership position in the development of new models of service.
Longstanding partnerships with government, business, the philanthropic, foundation and voluntary communities, and with our founding partner, UJA-Federation of New York, support and are vital to our capacity to reach more than 135,000 New Yorkers every year.
For almost four generations, FEGS has been inspired by a committed board of directors, dedicated staff, caring volunteers, treasured collaborations with partners, the many individuals who support our work, and most significantly, by the 12,000 people who we are proud to work with each and every day.
