Sharing the hope & love of Jesus with exploited & trafficked women in Atlanta…

Nearly 15 years ago, when I walked into a strip club for the first time, I was simply following the Lord’s direction. I gathered a group of women and their husbands, and we began praying and fasting for the Lord to open doors in our city! God never fails, and about 18 months after committing weekly to this prayer time, the Lord opened the first door to the clubs.

I believe God is already preparing the hearts of women in the industry in Atlanta. He is passionate about these women and will move mountains for us to reach them!

With your help, we can bring our model of outreach, community, and discipleship to this city. To do this, we need prayer, volunteers, and funding. Please consider how God may be calling you to support our mission in Atlanta.

Let’s go!

Our Efforts

The industry in Atlanta is vast, with over 12,000 potential victims of exploitation identified. Our small team is making an impact, one woman at a time, through the following efforts.

Get Involved

We cannot do any of this without our incredible team of volunteers. Read more about how you can serve and sign up for our next Volunteer Orientation.


Strip Club Outreach

We bring gifts & treats into local strip clubs to build relationships and share the gospel with the people we encounter. It takes a village to carry out this bi-weekly Outreach! Our Outreach Team goes into the clubs, our Prayer Team stays behind to pray during Outreach, and we have a team of volunteers who provide the gifts/treats we take into the clubs. If God is calling you, we would love to talk to you more about how you could serve.

Volunteer Opportunities

The first step to becoming a volunteer is to attend an upcoming Volunteer Orientation. At Orientation, we’ll provide an overview of our ministry and ways to serve, and from there, you can apply to become a volunteer. Below are all of the opportunities to serve within Outreach:


First, we GO to women wherever they are. Then we invite them IN to experience gospel-centered community. In this community, not only do we teach the love of Christ, but we show the love of Christ through authentic, no-strings-attached relationships. We help meet their basic physical needs by offering tangible resources that meet physical needs that they have.  More importantly, we meet spiritual needs by pointing them to Jesus,  praying with and for them, teaching them how to read the Bible, and showing them what love and friendship in Christ look like.  

Partner with us

If you are a business owner or are employed by an organization that is open to offering jobs for women who want a way out of the industry, please contact us to see how we can partner!

The third pillar of our model is Discipleship, and this will look different for every woman we serve. Some women may come to know Christ the first time we meet them, and others may take years to trust us and be open to the gospel. As women from the adult entertainment industry come to salvation in Christ, we invite them to participate in bible studies, connect them to a local church, and continue holistic, client-led case management. Our goal as we disciple women is to give them the opportunity to experience the life-changing love and grace of Jesus, increase their emotional, physical, educational, spiritual, and financial stability, and gain the life and job skills training necessary to function and retain meaningful employment.

God does miraculous things through prayer, so we invite you to make it a habit to pray for the women we serve; that they would put their hope in Christ and be set free from the darkness that surrounds them.

For Churches

At Scarlet Hope, we believe the Church is the answer because Jesus is the answer. Our ministry is merely a bridge to mobilize the Church to go to exploited women wherever they are and connect them back to the Local Church to receive ongoing care and discipleship. Some churches feel at a loss on how to best respond to the crisis of exploitation and trafficking, so that’s why we developed an online course to equip churches to reach, serve, and share the hope and love of Jesus with women in the adult entertainment industry.
