A LITTLE ABOUT US
Your Purchase Gives Women A Second Chance
Bridal Boutique by New Name opened in 2017 with the purpose of generating funds for women who have been exploited and trafficked in the Chicagoland area. We sell gently used and brand new wedding dresses for 50 - 80% off retail price. 100% of the proceeds go to New Name.
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 has no paid staff and and does no fundraising thus the funds from the Bridal Boutique have allowed us to support more women as they transition out of the life.
Since our opening we have had the privilege of helping many brides find their perfect dress. As brides start their new chapter, they allow women to have a new beginning too. Just this past year we were able to help with the following: counseling services, transportation, medical bills, junior college tuition, groceries and hotels for women who need safe living situations.
We are so thankful for our generous brides who donate their dresses to make this boutique possible.
