Mission Statement

Chrysalis exists to equip and empower individuals and their families to overcome the consequences of incarceration.


Chrysalis Ministries an interfaith agency, began in 1941 with 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 Ministries staff and volunteers provide religious services, support groups, and/or educational classes in 11 adult and juvenile detention and treatment facilities in the San Antonio Metropolitan area. Our Family Renewal Center, located at 509 San Pedro, serves as our outreach center and administrative offices. A wide variety of religious and social services are provided at the Family Renewal Center to those formerly incarcerated in any detention or treatment facility. These same services are also provided to the family members of those incarcerated, or formerly incarcerated. Dedicated to a policy of non-discrimination, Chrysalis Ministries strives to:

1.Assist incarcerated individuals with developing new direction and meaning in their lives.

2.Assist in the successful reintegration from incarceration back into society by providing life skills necessary for lawful existence.

3.Provide support, services, and resources to the family members of the incarcerated.

Chrysalis Ministries staff and volunteers provide chaplaincy services in the detention facilities as well as all of our social services in the Family Renewal Center to individuals of any religion, or no religion.
