On this episode of the Deerfield Public Library Podcast, we celebrate the Center for Enriched Living, a local non-profit organization serving people with developmental disabilities. The Center for Enriched Living (CEL) is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. In honor of this achievement, Executive Director Harriet Levy joined us to talk about the history, present, and future of this unique organization.
Hear moving stories of how CEL impacts the lives of its members through their many programs that focus on social, post-school, and work life. As Harriet tells us, society has changed greatly since 1968, but there is still a long way to go towards integration for people with developmental disabilities.
You’ll also learn how the Deerfield Public Library and other local groups partner with CEL. Find out more information on the Center for Enriched Living website. You can learn more about accessibility at the Deerfield Public Library on our new accessibility page.
We hope you enjoy our 21st episode! Each month we’ll be releasing an episode featuring a conversation with a dynamic guest with a Deerfield connection. Learn more about the podcast on our podcast page.
