I read once that every non-profit has the same issues; not enough money and not enough volunteers.

Scarlet Hope Ohio is a nonprofit that exists to share the hope and love of Jesus with women in the adult entertainment industry (aei). We do this through engaging them (outreach- both through strip club outreach + a new text initiative), Gospel Centered Community, and Discipleship (connecting women with their local church + Christian community).

Our vision is to see women in the adult entertainment industry all over the world 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 tangible resources.

We desire to be the relational bridge between the industry and the big C Church- in order to glorify Christ and bring others to freedom in Him. Through resource referral, forming friendships with women, and inviting them into our Churches, lives, and hearts- we're able to share the hope and love of Christ.
