Our History

Pink Cross Foundation was founded on January 24, 2007 by former porn actress Shelley Lubben and her husband Garrett Lubben. Shelley began working with adult industry workers in 2002 when she began volunteering as a teacher and counselor at local rescue missions and prisons in the State of California.

Shelley has worked at Madera Rescue Mission, Bakersfield Rescue Mission, Central California Women’s Facility Prison, and Valley State Prison for Women. Having a passion to reach out to adult industry workers all over the world, she was stirred to action and put up a web site in 2004 sharing her story and the truth about the abuse she experienced in the porn industry.

Unprepared for the overwhelming response she received from the public, she realized something more had to be done about the destruction pornography was inflicting upon adult industry workers and the general public. She also realized, God had called her to expose the filthy and abusive porn industry and to be unafraid and unrelenting.

Inspired by the Spirit of God, she and her husband Garrett founded Pink Cross Foundation to reach out to adult industry workers offering emotional, financial and transitional support to those who want out of porn and also help for those struggling with pornography and other victims of pornography. Pink Cross Foundation was officially incorporated on January 24, 2008.

Shelley currently travels internationally and speaks on the negative effects of pornography urging people to stop contributing to the porn industry while also inspiring them to live the amazing lives God has for them.
