Emerge Ladies


What is Emerge?

Emerge Ladies is a unique support group dedicated to encouraging women and providing free resources. Each month we visit the strip clubs with small free gift bags and copies of "SHINE-Uplifting Words for Girls in Stilettos." 

We cross network with other organizations to offer addiction recovery assistance, mental health counseling and spiritual guidance. Our teams are trained to show the utmost respect and confidentiality and will never judge or ask you to leave your job. We are merely making our organization available to you should you need our assistance.  


Why the strip clubs?

On Mother's Day, 2012, the Emerge outreach began with a simple idea of extending kindness and  dignity to ladies working in the adult entertainment industry with a goal to empower women and shatter mindsets. According to studies, women in the sex industry often struggle with addictions, abuse, and PTSD at a higher rate than ladies in other sectors. The Emerge teams seek to offer hope and viable options for those who are struggling. The goal is to empower women to fulfill their destiny not to interfere or push an agenda. 

"You will never find a higher concentration of women who need help" - Anthony Pepe, Strip Club Security & Management


Prison Ministry

Emerge Ladies donates thousands of copies of "SHINE-Uplifting Words for Girls in Stilettos" every year to inmates. We fly to different prisons to share a message of hope, love, and freedom. They are not alone and they are not forgotten! 

"All it takes is one person in your corner, cheering you on and your whole destiny can change. "  - Kelly Master
