Changing community priorities need focused time and skills.
Providing Assistance When Needed
One thing that the COVID-19 pandemic revealed was how an unforeseen event can expose omissions in the community safety nets. As a nimble organization, Experience Engaged was immediately able to direct some of our volunteers and Fellows to organizations that suddenly found themselves overwhelmed with requests to meet a heightened COVID-driven demand in areas such as food insecurity, homelessness, and social isolation, among others.
Experience Engaged is maintaining a vigilant watch to ensure its readiness to help its partners as other pressing needs surface.
