This month we are proud to feature the Center for Enriched Living (CEL).
The Center for Enriched Living exists so that people with developmental disabilities can be fully included in the community, achieve personal success, and enjoy a good quality of life. They provide opportunities for their members – the people who come to CEL – to make new friends, have fun and acquire new skills for social inclusion and independent living. And because 84% of members are at or below the federal poverty level, they keep our fees low and offer scholarships for all programs!
