Please DO Not Let This Organization Go Out of Business

 Funds Needed ASAP. ​No Amount Too Small. $10-30 from 600 People or $50 from 120 will allow us to assist more people who have experienced low energy trauma  or need quantum radionic tones and simple things like quality emotional or spiritual or nutritional support. 

Since Feb. 2000, paratransit riders have been standing up for their rights and the rights of wheelchair taxi riders 

and those who ride fixed route accessible transit. 

IMPRUVE is the Assumed Name of BNICEH, the Black Network In Children's Emotional Health.


 We are hosted by BNICEH, which helps the disabled people, senior and youth community, too.  During the shutdown, we still support Reparations for people of Afrikan descent and restoral of quantum energy balance and health that is not based on chemical warfare and questionable methods that neither provide wellness nor restore order to chaos in the mind and body.  But we need funds to continue our work.

Advocacy and Activism

We do everything we can to ensure that riders of accessible vehicles such as paratransit, wheelchair taxis and non-emergency vehicles such as Medicars know their rights and become a voice for their transportation rights in Illinois and across the nation.

Voice for Transportation Rights

We do everything we can to ensure that riders of accessible vehicles such as paratransit, wheelchair taxis and non-emergency vehicles such as Medicars know their rights and become a voice for their transportation rights in Illinois and across the nation.  

IMPRUVE relies on donations from patrons and dues from members as it is independently funded, mainly self-funded. We do not receive government grants or large donations from private foundations. We rely on volunteers to help with our projects and a volunteer board of directors to oversee our mission, policy and values.

We are generally proactive instead of reactive, but do attend or sponsor actions to call to the public's attention any discrimination, bias or unequal treatment of those we serve and will rally to stop protest abusive services on paratransit or in human services. 

We assist our members who are paratransit riders or refer them for help with certification of their paratransit, filing FTA (Federal Transit Administration) complaints, inquiries, and complaints with Pace customer service in Illinois on carrier violations of agreements or contracts. We also refer them to their local human relations, state human rights department or Protection and Advocacy office..

We partner with wheelchair taxi drivers and providers, and Medicar providers to advocate for Congress to sponsor the Congressional Transit Summit on Paratransit, Wheelchair Taxis and Medicars. 

Congressman Janice Schakowsky (IL-9) has already agreed to co-sponsor. One of our tasks is to get more Congressmen on board and to schedule a pre-Summit meeting to plan the agenda and dates with the Planning Committee established by Rep. Schakowsky. Dr. Ayo Maat, former CEO and President of IMPRUVE coordinates the Planning Committee and works under the auspices of Chief of Staff Cathy Hurwit, no longer with the Congresswoman and Staff Aide Brian Laughlin for Rep. Schakowsky.

Through these formal and informal partnerships on special projects related to human services, rallies or shared resources, and friendly relationships with various consumer advocates, drivers and providers across the nation, we seek to improve transportation for persons who are disabled;. 

To this end, we document their needs; "put the human back in human services;" ensure that Information Technology is usable by the disability community and seniors; and provide green living tools for dining, health, housing, employment, financial services, and transportation. 

IMPRUVE uses the financial services of GLCU (Great Lakes Credit Union), formerly NorthSide Community Federal Credit Union,  which was a green, disability-friendly credit union founded by 8 women who could not get big bank loans. NorthSide was federally insured and community-based.
