The Recession That Changed It All: Can a Recovery Change It Again?

By Gail A. Magaliff

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2010

Since its founding 75 years ago, F-E-G-S has provided innovative and ground-breaking employment, career, and workforce development services to tens of thousands of individuals of all ages, occupations, and income levels, particularly those who face barriers to employment, including refugees and immigrants, individuals with a disability, youth, older adults, and persons on public assistance. Along with colleagues of affiliated organizations in the International Association of Jewish Vocational Services (IAJVS) network throughout North America and Israel and those in affiliated professional associations that participate in the Jewish Communal Service Association (JCSA), and with partners in government, foundations, and organizations in the workforce development, education, and disabilities arenas, we have been challenged by the mounting needs of those seeking assistance as they face an increasingly competitive marketplace and the concomitant problems associated with long-term unemployment. Although these challenges have also resulted in new and creative models of service delivery, the deep impact of this recession has already restructured the workplace for all generations of workers.
