89% of women in the adult entertainment industry, when asked, said they wanted to escape, but felt they had no other means for survival. This statistic indicates to us that there are thousands of women who do not have the resources necessary to make the change they want to make in their life. So what happens when they are offered a viable alternative? It gives them hope.
God made a way for us to launch a Career Development Program and open a social enterprise, Scarlet’s Bakery, to offer women the opportunity to experience the life-changing love and grace of Jesus, increase their emotional, physical, educational, spiritual, and financial stability, and gain the life and job skills training necessary to function and retain meaningful employment. The program is 30 hours/week for 12 months and each woman in the program receives an hourly wage for her time spent working in the classroom and in job training. This model provides the time and space necessary to heal, stabilize, and make a plan for their lives while surrounded by a gospel-centered community.
