RAMP is a non-profit, non-residential Center for Independent Living (CIL) that promotes an accessible society that allows and expects full participation by people with disabilities. RAMP empowers people to live independently by making changes in their own lives, seeking peer support, obtaining resources and removing barriers that threaten their dreams of independence. RAMP advocates the implementation of current laws, promotion of needed legislation and improvement of existing systems while working to diminish negative attitudes that threaten to impede equal access.
