The Her Campaign needs 10-15 volunteers to paint their new office space in Billings.

Painting began at 9 a.m. on Friday and continue until 7 p.m. Saturday.

The space is located at Josephine Crossing, in the McCall building at 1536 Mullowney Lane and will be shared with Salt and Sage Web Studio and Hope of Africa.

Built in 2005, the McCall Homes office space was a perfect fit for the nonprofit to expand their organization, nonprofit leaders said.

"The office space will be used for indirect care, fundraising events, and raising awareness to make our community aware of what human trafficking is. As we grow, we really need meeting spaces outside of the Her Refuge because that is a secure environment so we really need that," Anjali Smith, development director of the Her Campaign, said.

The Her Campaign looking for help in Billings

Smith has been with the Her Campaign since 2016.

She fell in love with the work that they continue to do for women around Billings.

When asked why she joined, Smith said, "When you hear the stories of the girls that come in and how their lives have changed, it's impossible to not want to help. I love the women I work with. We provide hope for girls that have come out of seemingly hopeless situations."

The Her Campaign is just getting started on growing its organization.

In November, they partnered with a group from MSU Billings to launch a women's winter clothing drive.

The nonprofit was able to get two truckloads of women's clothing donated to the refuge home.

Although, the group is covered on clothing, but it still needs more.

The Her Campaign is always looking for donations of feminine products and toiletries, as well as volunteers who are looking to make a difference in the lives of Billings women.

The local nonprofit has also partnered with Salvation Army to launch a new Hope Line, a non-emergency crisis line for women facing sexual exploitation of any kind.

"The Hope Line provides a listening ear and resources for women who want to go further into seeking help after facing sexual trauma," Sammy Higgs, co-founder of the Her Campaign said.

And the organization has even more in store for the new year.
