ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A local non-profit that works with individuals with disabilities got some financial help with its mission.

RAMP received $25,000 from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. The money will be used for the group’s “Project Search” program. Students gain practical skills working in different internships through the year-long program.

“Project Search” then supports disabled students as they transition from school to a career.
