Our mission: 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.
Our vision: We see a future where people with developmental disabilities have equal opportunities to experience community, lifelong growth, and happiness.
We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) organization serving the social needs of people of all ages with developmental and intellectual disabilities – such as Down syndrome, autism and Fragile X syndrome. The Center is the place that brings friends and peers together – to benefit from lifelong learning and enrichment, enjoy social activities, and be an active part of the community. The Center has been serving the Chicagoland area for more than 45 years.
