New Name is a faith-based outreach to women in the adult industry. Founded in July of

2009, New Name has grown to 15 chapters throughout the Chicagoland area. 

Each month our teams collectively reach out to over 60 venues and make calls to over 100

women advertised online for prostitution. We also teach about the dangers of sex

trafficking and prostitution to at risk and incarcerated young women and men, and raise awareness within our communities about the dangers of sex trafficking.

New Name is a not-for-profit. We have no paid staff and currently do no fundraising but

solely rely on donations from churches and from our ministry partners who are passionate

about reaching women in the adult industry with the love of Jesus.​

SAFER PLACE

In the spring of 2015 we started our Safer Place Initiative, which quickly

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

New Name is an invaluable resource to girls both in and coming out of the business (or "the life"). The people at New Name are so nurturing and caring. I felt so comfortable talking to them about my problems. New Name was such a blessing to me and the girls I worked with. It was like a breath of fresh air every time they came into see us and I looked forward to each visit!

What our customers are saying

I love being apart of New Name's call center because it’s a way to give hope and share love. As a survivor of the sex trafficking world, I know what it is like to be alone and hopeless in that hell on earth. Through a simple phone call, you can give hope to the hopeless and love someone that has never felt healthy love before. A girl’s life can be changed forever just starting with a phone call. I love seeing how God reaches out and touches the girls, through volunteers who are brave enough to ask the question, “How are you doing, can I pray for you?” I love call center because it’s a way to get involved, make a difference and change someone’s life, by loving the way Jesus has loved me.

What our customers are saying

New-Name is more than a ministry to ​me. New-Name is my spiritual family. Since day one, they've had my best interest at heart while helping me stay on the right path. They believe in me, they encourage me, they remind me of who I am in Christ. Most importantly, they are constantly praying for me; for my health, my kids, my family, my future. I am so Blessed to have support from such a beautiful group of diverse women. Thank you New-Name.
