A MINISTRY OF LOVE, HOPE AND PRESENCE TO WOMEN IN THE ADULT INDUSTRY THROUGH SAFE RELATIONSHIPS AND EMPOWERMENT
New Name is a faith-based outreach to women in the Chicagoland area. Since 2009 our chapters have been reaching out to women working in massage parlors and adult venues, and to women posted in online prostitution ads.
New Name is a not-for-profit. We have no paid staff and currently do no fundraising but solely rely on the funds generated by our bridal boutique and donations from churches and ministry partners who are passionate about reaching women in the adult industry with the love of Jesus.
Making a Difference
My heart is connected to New Name.
At a time in my life when I was drowning in all aspects.
Faith, financially, emotionally, physically, and every single other way a human can falter , New Name held their hand out to me, helped to guide me from the deep end and right into Gods arms. While so many others pretended not to see the hurt and pain, New Name cried with me, prayed with me and walked alongside me and as the day led to months that led to years and even now that I’m not drowning anymore they still have my hand here for the rise and fall of the tides we call life. New name is my family, my support, my heart!
