Living Independently for Today and Tomorrow has relocated its Billings office from 3333 Second Ave. N. to 1201 Grand Avenue, Suite 1.
The Grand Avenue site formerly housed Computers Unlimited and the district office for Congressman Dennis Rehberg.
The new LIFTT office was tentatively scheduled to open on Wednesday, Jan. 2.
“The move will be a great start to the new year for LIFTT,” said executive director Joe Burst. “Our new offices will provide an ideal environment for our staff and consumers. It is a site that will allow us to move forward not only with our efforts in the Billings community but will serve as an active home base as we seek to expand and enhance our presence across our service area.”
Among the highlights of the 1201 Grand Ave. site:
• The building meets the accessibility standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
• The location is served by a Billings Met Transit (Grand Avenue Route).
• The building will include space for LIFTT to expand its peer program as well as host classes, activities and events for the community.
• The location expands the amount of parking available for consumers and the public wishing to visit LIFTT.
The phone numbers and office hours for the LIFTT Billings offices will remain the same. LIFTT will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and can be reached by dialing either 259-5181 or outside of the Billings calling area toll-free 1-800-669-6319.
