A Community of Federal Employees
FEEA started like most great ideas with a small group of dedicated people. Nearly all were leaders of large federal unions or management associations, elected by their constituencies to represent their interests.
As they spoke together, they realized the challenges they faced were remarkably consistent. In union halls and management suites across the country, the questions were the same: How do I keep and retain good employees? Will I be able to save enough to send my kids to college? What happens if an unexpected medical bill puts me or an employee over the edge? Who stands up for us when the going gets tough?
This laid the foundation for FEEA, begun July 1986, as a community of federal employees who would support each other in times of need.
One bedrock of our country is the American Dream. It's the concept that if you work hard, you can support a family, and your kids can get a good education. If you are a young person, you will have the opportunity to go to college - even if you are not rich.
Our goal at FEEA is to play some small part in giving back the American Dream to the everyday federal worker. For the people who do the work of our country every day--it's the least we can do.
