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 with women in the adult entertainment industry of Louisville, KY by serving a home-cooked meal and forming relationships with the women working there. Through a variety of God-sized circumstances and actions, Tami Majtan, a volunteer for Scarlet Hope Reno, moved to Nashville, TN with her family. Almost immediately, she knew she wanted to start a Scarlet Hope in her new city. Through much prayer, patience, and excitement, Scarlet Hope Nashville officially launched on September 5th, 2019, 11 years to the day that Rachelle first walked into a club and shared the hope and love of Christ with the women there!
