The New Mexico Ramp Project (NMRP) sprung out of the great work that the Texas Ramp Project started (texasramp.org). As they built more than 17,000 ramps throughout Texas, they developed the Corporate structure and ramp building procedures for an outstanding program. They have freely shared these with us, and for this we thank them.

The New Mexico Ramp Project was formed as a New Mexico nonprofit corporation in July of 2019. Charitable status was received from the Internal Revenue Service (501c3) allowing donations to be tax deductible.  We are fortunate to have Doug Rowley as our Executive Director because of his extensive experience working with the Texas Ramp project for more than four years.  NMRP is a totally volunteer organization which allows us to put the bulk of donations into materials and tools which help disabled individuals break the isolation resulting from the difficulty of getting in and out of their homes.

We have been building ramps all over the state in places such as Laguna, Las Cruces, Albuquerque, Carlsbad, and Sandoval County.  Our long term goal is to be able to build ramps throughout New Mexico.
