About Chrysalis Ministries: In 1998,  Pastor Renee’ Ward founded Chrysalis Ministries, a faith-based non-profit agency following the death of her late husband, who succumbed to an AIDS-related illness. Over the past 15 years, Ward continues to advocate for more awareness on the prevention of HIV/AIDS and it’s impact on descendants of the African Diaspora as well as other opportunistic diseases, like breast cancer, through visual arts and ongoing collaborations with local and national organizations representing the health, civic, art, non-profit, and government arenas. A passionate humanitarian of social justice against disparities impacting vulnerable populations, her actions speak loud as her words in proclaiming that:  “A positive diagnosis doesn’t mean a negative outcome. I SPEAK LIFE.”
