“Twelve years ago God called me to serve women in the adult entertainment industry with the gospel message that he loves them and cares for them. Through the gospel I have seen countless lives changed by the transforming work of Christ, that's why we exist!”

Our Programs

Scarlet Hope exists to help restore the lives of women in the Adult Entertainment Industry. We do this by sharing the hope and love of Jesus, leading them through discipleship, providing career development in our social enterprise, and equipping a network of churches, ministries, and individuals to reach and empower women in their own communities.


Scarlet Hope began with a calling to go into the dark places to share the hope and love of Jesus. Through our Outreach program, we go into the strip clubs, massage parlors, and other adult entertainment businesses to meet women where they are.

Our Discipleship program cares for women who are ready to begin a life of following Christ. We care for these women by building a community of support through Bible studies, mentorships, recovery programs, and connections to the essential resources they need.

Career Development

The main focus of the Career Development program is to empower and equip women with the life and job skills required to not only attain employment but to maintain it. This program combines classroom learning with instructional job training at our social enterprise, Scarlet’s Bakery.
