The Center for Enriched Living’s (CEL) sound fiscal management practices and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest and most-used independent evaluator of charities. CEL exists for people with developmental disabilities to be fully included in the community, achieve personal success and enjoy a good quality of life.
Open 7 days a week, CEL provides life enhancing opportunities to Chicago area youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities including people with autism, Down syndrome, and cerebral palsy.
“Throughout our 46-year history, we have been committed to providing our donors, members and all stakeholders with both accountability and transparency,” says Harriet Levy, executive director. “We have a strong board and staff who ensure that we incorporate best business practices within our organization. Our goal is always to provide the best experience for both our members and donors.”
