Redemptive Work on the South Side
How we are at work
Loving Our Neighbors
Rebuild and restore community
We have been working since 1981 to invest in and foster transformation in Billings’ oldest and most poverty-stricken community, the South Side. Through relationship, economic development, and empowerment, we seek to help families and individuals find hope, healing, and confidence for their future.
Creating Second Chances
Our Programs & Projects
Rail//Line Coffee Shop
Restored from an old, broken-down gas station, Rail//Line is more than just a coffee shop. We hire at-risk youth to provide job and leadership training while also stimulating the South Side economy.
At-Risk Youth leadership
Youth works provide a safe place for at-risk youth in the South Side neighborhoods. Our Youth Works staff lives in the neighborhood and lives life with kids every day providing stable and positive relationships.
Women and children
Hannah House is a recovery home for women coming from incarceration or recovering from an addiction. Our hope is to provide holistic healing and redemption of families.
leadership & spiritual growth
Our internship program is a year long endeavor for college-age individuals seeking leadership, skills, and ministry training. We hope our internship acts as a stepping stone to bring more change in our community.
Our property management group provides over 65+ affordable housing units to families or individuals in need. We offer second chances for those with no credit, rental history, or poor background checks.
The Gathering Place
Non Profit Wedding Venue
The Gathering Place is located in our CLDI headquarters building and provides a modern-industrial space in downtown Billings for weddings and events. The best part is the funds go back into the South Side community.
mentoring and discipling
Our wise mentors, Fred and Joan Nelson, offer marriage care, family care, and discipleship instruction. They help families become healthier through practical Biblical instruction and pastoral care.
affordable property by CLDI
CLDI helped build a 70 home division in 2001 and currently, we like to purchase more of the homes and subsidize the price to eligible home buyers.
Join an Unstoppable Community of Monthly Givers
Our community of monthly givers is known as The 100Fold because, like Jesus tells his disciples in Mark 10, we believe that when people live lives of generosity and sacrifice the blessings returned to them will be one hundred fold.
The 100Fold is a group of people who are passionate, courageous and committed to seeing the South Side be restored through a gospel lens. You belong here.
