Help get curb ramps fixed

The Disabled Services Division of the City of Evanston Department of Health and Human Services is working with the Public Works Department to identify curb ramps in need of replacement.

Replacing curb ramps at street corners throughout the city ensures that the ramps meet the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines.

Accessories that help the animals

Students at Roycemore School sold their own handmade bracelets, anklets and key chains to raise $120 for Evanston’s Animal Shelter.
