Training families for long-term residential care for survivors.
Helping HER heal, grow, and find purpose through intentional community living for survivors of human trafficking.
We envision a world where families and communities everywhere are trained and equipped to be a safe place for survivors.
God is a father to the fatherless, he
places the lonely in families, and
sets the captives free…
HER Campaign was founded by Britney and Sammy Higgs as a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization in 2016. In 2017, we opened HER Refuge, our first long term residential program in Billings, Montana that served women survivors 18+ including those in the greatest demographics of need: ages 35+, those with handicaps and disabilities, and survivors with children. HER Refuge was operated out of the Higgs’s personal home, providing intentional community living and immersion into a healthy family dynamic.
Services that residents received through the HER Refuge were meant to help them lead a life of independence. Services included living in a loving family environment, basic daily living skills, resources to creative therapies (equine, art, etc.), medical, group and individual therapy, job skills training, and employment opportunities.
HER Campaign’s solution for long term residential care for survivors is the Family Alliance Program, an expansion of our HER Refuge safe home. This program’s mission is to raise up families to become a safe place for survivors by providing long term residential care, integrating survivors into trained and equipped host families.
Host families go through a vetting process and yearlong mentorship program to become trained and equipped to begin walking the healing journey with survivors. Host families partner with HER Campaign strategic partners to provide wrap around resources for the survivors in their home including but not limited to basic daily living skills, creative therapies (equine, art, etc.), medical, group and individual therapy, job skills training, and employment opportunities.
HER Refuge Graduate Story
I had never seen a room so beautiful and I couldn’t believe it was for me. It had a real bed, a dresser, and everything. I had been so used to other shelters where you sleep on a cot in a room with many people. When I got in the bed, I stayed there for 3 straight days, I didn’t realize how tired I was. After the 3rd day, I got up and we sat down and had breakfast as a family, something I had never been used to. I thank God every day for where He placed me.
