ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — RAMP, a Rockford non-profit which helps disabled people, is making a temporary move while their downtown office gets a little renovation.
RAMP (Rockford Area Mobility Project) moved out of its office, at 202 Market Street, and into Mercyhealth at 2300 N. Rockton.
The organization promotes accessibility living for people with disabilities.
RAMP’s building is undergoing a $1.5 million restoration and renovation, designed to give both staff and customers more privacy, room for training, and better accommodations.
RAMP’s executive director, Julie Bosma, hopes the changes will boost morale as well.
“When you’re in a better space, staff are much more engaged with people and able to interact,” she explained. “Again, privacy is key. Making people comfortable with your surroundings, that’s key. I think staff will be more motivated.”
RAMP is expected to move back into the Market Street location in late Summer 2020.
