A Center of Independent Living
Ability Montana (Ability Montana) is a nonprofit and one of four Centers of Independent Living (CIL) in the state of Montana. Ability Montana’s mission is to promote independence and advocate for people living with disabilities. To do this, we stand by three values: empowerment, advocacy, and community. We aim to break down the barriers to accessibility and to empower people to live independently, whatever that looks like to them. We advocate for people living with disabilities, and for their right to a self-directed life.
About Our Programs
As with other Centers for Independent Living (CILs), we believe in the power of community and human connection and are proud of the peer-led aspect of CILs. To achieve that, we offer a variety of services and programs built around the five core pillars of independent living.
Each Center for Independent Living in the United States must provide programs and resources around these five core pillars of services.

At times like these, providing Hope & Healing means more than ever to those we serve. This is why Intermountain’s missional work providing Hope & Healing to over 1,200 children, youth, and families every day will not stop. To ensure our care for those who need it most continues as we navigate around the coronavirus (COVID-19), Intermountain’s family of 260 professionals continue to provide greater access to care.

Church, when you hear the word what comes to mind? We think about Gathering and Scattering. We gather on Sundays to begin conversations around topics that are relevant to you and your everyday lives. We strive to create experiences intended to engage and challenge – no matter what you believe about God, Jesus, and the Bible.
We’re honored to gather at Grandstreet Theatre in downtown Helena, located at 325 N. Park Ave. You can also learn more about The Grandstreet Theatre Company by visiting their website grandstreettheatre.com.
Sunday gathering times are at 9.00am & 10.45am.
What should you expect at a Sunday experience? Every week we start with a handful of songs led by our excellent band of musicians. After about 15 minutes of music, one of our pastors teaches for 35 minutes and we almost always conclude with another song. Our gatherings last for 60 minutes. Great coffee and tea are free and available to everyone in attendance.
Narrate Kids provides age-appropriate, fun and engaging experiences for infants (6 weeks old) thru 5th graders.
Scattering is born of our calling and desire to matter, to narrate God’s story to our community by the way we serve. We’re serious about being the kind of the church that exists for the benefit of its non-members… to the extent that the most ardent critic of Christianity would be bummed if we suddenly ceased to exist. We seek to make this happen both by validating the opportunity to serve people in our everyday, organic lives as well as by coming together once every month to serve on a large-scale, community-wide level. We call these community-serving events “Scattering” opportunities.
