A very special thank you to my father, Rabbi Gans, and my mother, for all their love and support, and for teaching me how to be a good person, a mentsch. I have found a lot of new freedoms since I moved into my apartment, but I have also had to learn how to deal with making choices. I enjoy my apartment and my roommates. I like my job at Otsar because I can help people and earn money. I like the Women's League most of all because they show me great respect. They are helping me become a more independent person and we have fun together." Francine Farkas, another individual served by Women's League for the past 18 years said, "Women's League has taken care of me very well. It is my home away from home. I have learned how to cook well, how to use the computer and enjoy going to do exercise at Curves by myself, taking the B-9 bus." Now fully integrated in the community, Ms. Farkas has reason to be proud of her accomplishments, and added "I have become very independent, thanks to Mrs. Warman and the entire Women's League!"

"Being part of Compass has given us the opportunity to really focus on quality. It raises the bar, and keeps our agency’s focus not just on what we have already accomplished, but what we hope to accomplish in the future."
"As a Compass agency, we have had the opportunity to network with other top tier agencies from throughout the state, and have our voices heard at all levels of OPWDD. We have been exposed to new methods and new ideas that we may not have come across otherwise, and, in turn, have been able to share our own successes and ideas."
