Our Team

Vickie Lemasters
Vickie LemastersFounder & President
Vickie Lemasters, Founder and President of Islands of Hope Dream Center, has a passion for women who have been trapped by sex trafficking. As a young child, Vickie 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 knows that it was through her relationship with Christ and the prayers of her Grandmother that she was pulled through safely. A strong community of Christians and the opportunity to become educated gave her tools to a more fulfilled life. As a result of these life experiences, she hopes through Islands of Hope to do the same for countless other women.
