Our dedicated staff at the Community Enrichment and Learning Center are focused on ensuring all receive the care, personal attention and training they need to lead enriched, valued and independent lives and become active members of their local communities and neighbors.


Exceed’s program is one of the best in the area. Individuals are in the community everyday participating in:

  • Volunteer opportunities at local non-profits

  • Business tours

  • Social activities that have our folks bowling, shopping, walking in local parks, attending movies, visiting the library, pet stores and local farms.


Paths 2 PDX is a "Community First Choice" program providing fun-filled outings that promote individual choice, participation, and work/play balance. As they explore their communities individuals learn, practice and apply skills which result in greater independence and opportunities to develop long lasting connections.
