On Thursday, December 3, at 6:30 p.m., RAMP joined the library for a virtual informational session where patrons learned about the services they provide. During the session they covered their Fast Track program that lays the foundation for high school students with disabilities to reach their full potential. They also discussed Project SEARCH, a unique, business led, one-year school to work transition program that takes place entirely in the workplace.
Established in 1980, RAMP is a non-profit, non-residential Center for Independent Living (CIL) that emulates the Independent Living Philosophy with a mission that promotes an accessible society that allows and expects full participation by people with disabilities. RAMP is a passionate partner for people with disabilities desiring to live a useful and rewarding life. They empower people with disabilities to realize there are no limits to what they can do. They accomplish this by assisting them to live independently, make changes in their own 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 persons with disabilities while working to diminish negative attitudes that threaten to impede equal access.
