The mission of Chrysalis Ministries is Chrysalis exists to equip and empower individuals and their families to overcome the consequences of incarceration. As an interfaith agency, Chrysalis started in 1941 under the name Bexar County Detention Ministries by a small group of local pastors who provided worship services and pastoral counseling at the County Jail. Incorporated as a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) agency in 1972, Chrysalis staff and volunteers provide religious services, support groups, and educational classes in 15 adult and juvenile detention and treatment facilities in the San Antonio Metropolitan area and Karnes City. Our Family Renewal Center, located at 509 San Pedro, serves as our outreach center and administrative offices.
Chrysalis Ministries provide hands-on case management and counseling services to former inmates and their families as they overcome the consequences of incarceration.
