Center for Enriched Living

The Center for Enriched Living (CEL) enhances and enriches the lives of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities – from youth through adulthood. CEL provides a space for their members to grow and learn new social, educational, and independent living skills with a community of friends and a world of opportunities. CEL celebrates the unique contributions of everyone, where all voices are heard and personal choices are respected. Highland Park Community Foundation’s grant supports a variety of programs in which Highland Park and Highwood youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities participate as CEL members. These include virtual and in-person programs at CEL’s facility in Riverwoods, via Zoom, and in area group homes and schools.
