Scarlet Hope exists to share the hope and love of Jesus with women in the adult entertainment industry.
Our vision is to see women in the adult entertainment industry engaged with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching them they are loved by the Creator of the universe and were made in His image while equipping and empowering them to change their lives through gospel-centered community and resources.
Scarlet Hope began in 2007 when our founder, Rachelle Starr, was called to bring the hope and love of Jesus to women in the adult entertainment industry of Louisville, KY by serving a home-cooked meal and forming relationships with the women working there. After serving there for over a year, Jarré Poh launched Scarlet Hope Reno in 2014. Now, six years later, we have the privilege of bringing a tray of finger foods and a Bible verse card to an average of 100 women every week to all four of Reno’s strip clubs. We are constantly amazed by seeing God meet women exactly where they are and reveal His overwhelming and all-satisfying love to them.
