Grand Opening @ New Billings Location May 10

LIFTT invites you to join us for the grand opening of our new Billings location (1241 Crawford Drive) on Friday May 10 from 11-2

Living Independently for Today & Tomorrow (LIFTT) is excited to announce the Grand Opening of our new office location at 1241 Crawford Drive in Billings. The event will take place on Friday, May 10, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Join them for a day filled with celebration, as we mark the beginning of a new chapter in our journey to empower individuals with disabilities in southeastern and south-central Montana. Guests can expect gourmet hors d’oeuvres catered by the Passages Culinary Arts Program, an official ribbon-cutting ceremony by the Billings Chamber of Commerce, and exciting door prizes including gift cards and baskets from local restaurants and businesses, MSU Bobcat Football tickets, hotel nights in Vegas, and more.

Executive Director Carlos Ramalho expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “The grand opening will celebrate the new building, LIFTT’s permanent headquarters. For many years, we have dreamed of having our building, and our dream has become a reality.”

Ramalho added, “The grand opening is also a celebration of our team members’ resilience. On March 3, 2024, our lives were suddenly turned upside down after our previous location was flooded, and we had to suspend our operations. Thanks to all our team members, LIFTT could move to a building that had not been remodeled, had no telephone, and had no internet server. Working together, our team transformed a disaster into a success story, and on April 1, 2024, we were able to open our doors to the public we serve again.”

LIFTT invites the community to explore their new facility, learn more about their vast array of programs and services, and join them in celebrating this milestone event.
