Our Mission Statement

To facilitate the personal, emotional, and spiritual transformation of incarcerated individuals, those formerly incarcerated and their families. 


Statement of Purpose

Chrysalis Ministries (formerly Bexar County Detention 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 10 adult and juvenile detention and treatment facilities in the San Antonio Metropolitan and Karnes City areas. Our Family Renewal Center, located at 503 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.

IT'S BIRDIES FOR CHARITY TIME!!


Birdies for Charity® is a fundraising program designed in 1997, to give participating charities and schools the opportunity to generate contributions through the Valero Texas Open. Birdies for Charity is a no-cost program that gives 100% of the funds raised back to the participating organization. Funds are generated by soliciting pledges from individuals and corporations.


Birdies for Charity is like a walk-a-thon, but instead of donating per mile, participants make a pledge for every birdie made at the Valero Texas Open. The 2013 Valero Texas Open had 1,640 birdies made, so a pledge of $0.01 yielded a donation of $16.40.


Donors also have the ability to make a one-time donation and flexibility to pay in advance or to be billed after the tournament. Donations are accepted from anywhere around the world and are tax deductible.


The 2014 Birdies for Charity fundraising campaign is held October 4, 2013 – March 25, 2014.
