The Church’s Mission

 

Mission Nugget  -

History of Friendship House of Christian Service, Billings, MT

In 1957 several concerned community members saw their neighborhood in decline. Young children were unsupervised and uncared for, older children were entertaining themselves through delinquency, and poor families were not meeting their own basic needs. Supported by the American Baptist Church, these folks began taking children into their homes after school to provide food, safety, and education. In 1969 Friendship House built a new facility on the corner of 8th Avenue and 32nd Street. Four years later a small gymnasium was added to the facility, and in 2007 an additional room and new playground were also added. Thought they have since expanded into local schools, Friendship House continues to operate from this campus as well.
