This is accomplished by assisting them to live independently, make changes in their lives, seek peer support, obtain resources and remove barriers that threaten their dreams of independence.

RAMP advocates the implementation of current laws, promotion of needed legislation and improvement of existing systems for people with disabilities while working to diminish negative attitudes that threaten to impede equal access.

RAMP advocates for and serves people with disabilities out of four offices in Boone, DeKalb, Stephenson and Winnebago counties. RAMP is a United Way Member Agency.
