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. In 2013, Beth Jacobs, who had been a part of the Louisville team, moved with her husband and three children to Las Vegas, NV. Trained as a professional educator with a Masters from the University of Louisville, Beth established Scarlet Hope Las Vegas in 2018. The team serves between 120-150 women each month through street outreach, club outreach, and supporting churches as they work to reach Las Vegas with the hope of the gospel. In 2019, Scarlet Hope Las Vegas joined the Southern Nevada Human Trafficking Taskforce to work with other local organizations dedicated to preventing sexual exploitation and slavery in Nevada.
