Can you believe it! So much has happened in the past two weeks! Lighting has been installed, our tables and chairs have been set up, trees have been planted, we have green grass and sprinklers, and now we officially have our occupancy! I am thrilled with Langlas and so thankful for their partnership, as well as the opportunity to work with our friends at Collaborative Design to beautify the South Side of Billings! Hopefully we will have the opportunity to do many more projects with these two great companies!

Grand Opening and community celebration August 22… stay tuned…

What a difference landscaping makes!

First lunch at Rail//Line with Sam Li!  Is this cool or what!!!

Yes, we have a drive thru!!

Meet our newest Apprentices that are participating in our job training and leadership development program!

Check out that space!!! And Ben (with Langlas) has gone the extra mile to not only love and serve CLDI well, but our neighbors as well. Thank you Ben!

Just this morning I was looking through a photo album that the kids left out. Low and behold, the page I turned to was from when I was in Seattle in 2015 and wrote out my first ideas for a neighborhood cafe on a napkin! While it didn’t happen when I thought it would happen, here we are 5 years later. Not by my timing, but by His!
