Reno

Our Mission

Scarlet Hope exists to share the hope and love of Jesus with women in the adult entertainment industry.

Our Vision

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.

Our History

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.

About the
Executive Director

Jarre’ Poh is a Nevada native who knew since the age of 13 that God wanted her in full-time ministry.  When she and her husband moved to Louisville so her husband could attend seminary, God providentially caused her path to cross with Rachelle’s, and she had an immediate desire to join the ministry there.  It was in 2012 that she began serving with Scarlet Hope Louisville, and God used her time there to impress on her heart the need to start a similar work when she returned to her hometown of Reno. A year later, after being trained and coached by Rachelle, Jarré and her husband moved back to Reno, and Scarlet Hope Reno officially began. Jarré is committed to bringing the gospel to women in the adult entertainment industry and walking with them as they grow, heal, and become the person God created them to be. Jarré relishes jogging and solitude, but between being a pastor’s wife, homeschooling her four children, and leading a ministry, Jarré doesn’t remember what free time looks like!
