Partnership: Hope's Landing
Location: Tiffin, Ohio
Mission / Values: "Established in May 2021, Hope’s Landing is a nonprofit social enterprise headquarted in Tiffin, Ohio. All of our products are handmade by local survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence who have graduated from a local safe house, shelter, or other recovery program."
"100% of the profits from our sales go right back into the organization to fund the survivor's wages and material costs. Once all operating costs are covered, any remaining amount will be donated back to local shelters to help fund their mission."
"Unfortunately, many survivors struggle to find employment because of various issues including mental health, drug charges, lack of job skills, etc. Hope's Landing will provide them with a fair wage, job training, a money management course, and career development workshops."
"This program will equip survivors with the resources necessary to provide for themselves and create a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Our hope is that we can help break the cycle of poverty and abuse that runs rampant in so many communities."
"The women come to us as survivors, become Production Associates, and leave as empowered women who are ready to live independently, take on a new career, and get a second chance at life."
