Islands of Hope

Islands of Hope Dream Center is a Christ-centered non-profit organization established on Oahu in 2014. We offer sex-trafficked women a safe living environment with a caring and equipped staff, and a counseling program necessary to help these young women find healing.

We are networked with The Dream Center and other non-profits in Hawaii, offering the opportunity for restoration to rescued female traffic victims.

Our History

Vickie Lemasters, Founder and President of Islands of Hope Dream Center, has a passion for women trapped by human trafficking. As a young child, she was a victim of sexual abuse and identifies with the circumstances that lead many of these women to a life of shame and regret.

She is the mother of three adult daughters, has taken undergraduate classes for nursing, and has worked in education as a teacher’s aide, in medical as a nurse’s aide, in retail as a store manager, and now in non-profit management and social services as the founder and president of Islands of Hope Dream Center for 8 years.

She has trained with the LA and Phoenix Dream Centers and provides one-on-one care for survivors of human trafficking and coordinates services with other service providers to allow these women to heal, restore their lives, and find hope.
