Chrysalis Mentoring was created to improve the lives of children and teenagers at risk of becoming victims of human trafficking through mentoring, that is, guidance and support from adults. We believe mentoring produces positive results for the entire community. We endeavor to help repair their broken walls through the grace, mercy, unconditional love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Seeing through their hard, deeply damaged outer shells and into the beauty inside that was created in His image, we help kids discover God's potential and purpose for their lives.
We provide mentors to work directly with boys and girls in the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department. Our original goal was to target and mentor to girls at high risk of sex trafficking. However, we quickly found that approximately 75% of the girls in our mentoring program were already involved in trafficking on all different levels. Some had been previously trafficked while others were currently being trafficked. Even more disturbing was that most of these girls did not even realize they were being exploited. Through extensive screening and training, we have been able to adapt and expand our program to meet the demands of these girls.
"First, kind eyes meet desperate eyes. Next, strong hands help weak ones. Then, the miracle of God.
We do our small part, he does the big part."
