About Us

In the Spring of 2013, a small group of private Ramona citizens formed a non-profit organization to help fill the gaps in the deferred maintenance issues which potentially effect the health and safety of the students and staff members of Ramona Unified Schools.

FORUS has received its 501(c)(3) status as a tax-exempt non-profit organization. Raise the Roof forus
