we reached unprecedented results with our impact and

fund raising.

partner agencies, our financial supporters, our volunteers, and

our staff. It has not always been easy and we had to adjust our

processes, make hard decisions, and ask more from our

supporters. As a result of our efforts, we have created

undeniable change in our community.

Community is at the heart of everything we do at EE2. It centers

us as we Live through the outbreak of the coronavirus,

economic disruptions, calls for racial justice and the

uncertainty of what might come next. Although we cannot be

confident of what the future holds, we can be clear and

resolved in our mission: to create sustainable change by

providing community enrichment through programming.

We Leveraged the talents and resources of all of our partners in

order to achieve these extraordinary results. Due to the

commitment of donors, advisors, community and Leaders, we

EE2 continued to work with the Excel

Academy All-Girl Drum line to teach the

fundamentals of drum line percussion to

girls from the ages of 8-13. Due to COVID-19

restrictions, in person public performances

were halted. Fortunately, Excel Academy

All-Girl Drumline, under the direction of the

EE2 program specialist, was able to perform

in the DC 2020 Martin Luther King, Jr.

Parade before the second-round of COVID-19




In 2020, EE2, in partnership with the CCWDC­

UCC set the ground work for the expansion of

it's Opioid Awareness and Harm Reduction

program which was conducted from October

2020 to September 2021. This is significant

because the 2019 Opioid Awareness work

only lasted a month because was the first

time EE2 was able to work as a grantee with

the DC Department of Behavioral Health ("DC

DBH") on this initiative. DC Engage also

provided significant support in this effort.
