Realizing the need for individuals with disabilities to experience a quality leisure and socialization program, The Center for Life Enrichment created the PALS program. With a different activity scheduled daily, individuals can exercise choice in selecting activities.

The PALS program is offered five days a week from 3pm to 8pm. The program includes daily learning activities, focusing on music, current events, arts, crafts, and academic skills including math, reading, and writing. Following the learning activity, individuals participate in a community outing. Community outings have included trips to nearby metropolitan areas, local parks, concerts, museums, and sporting events. Individuals also enjoy trips to the movies, bowling, library, and various other exciting activities. Every month the PALS program hosts a dance at The Center for Life Enrichment. PALS dances give individuals the opportunity to socialize and establish new friendships. Every other month, the PALS program also offers a weekend activity. Participants can take trips to the Baltimore Aquarium, National Zoo, Washington DC, and amusement parks.
