Iris Hecock

Director of Operations

Iris started with Hope's Landing as the Executive Assistant in December 2021. She now works as our Director of Operations, taking care of many of the details and logistics to make Hope's Landing a well-oiled machine. Outside of making our lives easier at Hope's Landing, Iris is very active and enjoys activities such as hiking, SUP, and even powerlifting! She's a mom who spends much of her time enjoying being with her family.

Production Manager

Our production manager is a survivor of domestic violence herself. To keep her safe we don't share any personal information about her.

She is the person in charge of overseeing our other survivors as they make the Hope's Landing products. She works hard to create new products, perfect the products we have, and set the standard for our products. Our production manager creates a positive and safe environment for our survivors to work in.

Production Assistants

Our Survivors

We employ survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence as our production assistants. They are the ones who actually make the products from hand pouring the candles to mixing together our scrubs. By working at Hope's Landing they are empowered by receiving fair pay, learning skills, working on themselves, and by having access to the resources and support they need. For safety reasons we don't share information about our production assistants.
