NM Ramp Project

NM Ramp Project

Have you ever changed a person’s life in a single day? The NM Ramp Project does it multiple times a year! They build wheelchair ramps for disabled or elderly people who can’t afford to buy one. In a few hours on a Saturday morning, we give these folks the freedom to leave their home again—the home where they want to remain but whose steps have imprisoned them.

The volunteers of the New Mexico Ramp Project build wheelchair ramps for the low-income disabled in the Southern New Mexico area. This group works in conjunction with Texas Ramp Project. Texas Ramps assists in financially supporting our team and all the supplies they will need to help build ramps within Southern New Mexico. We currently have 3 teams participating in the NM Ramp Project, but are always welcoming new teams to expand our outreach. If you are interest in starting a team please contact Dr. Doug Rowley: rdrowleymd@yahoo.com 

If you would like to participate with the University UMC team, also know as the “Ramp Rats” please contact their recruitment coordinator Jack Thomas: jthomas@nmsu.edu 

*The Southern NM Ramp Project teams are currently not taking any new referrals due to lack of funding. They will continue to work through those already on the wait list while new funding sources are secured. 

If you would like to give to this life giving ministry, you can donate through our online giving portal (just click the Give button up above or below.). Each ramp build costs around $750 depending on the  size and complexity of ramp needed.
