Empowering people with disabilities to lead independent and
inclusive lives in the community
A Note from Our Executive Director
"Ramping Up for a New Year"
Happy New Year to you and your families!
As we begin a new year of supporting consumers towards successful outcomes,
I want to share a few words about the Ohio Temporary Ramp Project (OTRP). CILO is very fortunate to partner with the Ohio Department of Medicaidand People Working Cooperatively to provide this service that clearly aligns with our mission to empower people with disabilities to lead independent and inclusive lives.
For OTRP eligible consumers a modular ramp can be provided in a timely manner and serve as a temporary solution until a permanent ramp can be provided. The ramp components can also be re-used to serve multiple people.
CILO takes pride in being part of this important project for Ohio consumers. Thank you to Mr. Edward Gibson of the Ohio Department of Medicaid and to Mr. Brad Staggs at People Working Cooperatively for their partnership and for sharing our passion in this project.
Do you know someone who is currently on Medicaid and may need a ramp? For additional information, please contact Ramp Project Coordinator Rick Taylor at 513.241.2600 ext.113 or by email.
As always, I want to hear your ideas and thoughts and I encourage you to contact me!
