About Us

Chrysalis is a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles dedicated to creating a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to find and retain employment.

Each client in this program enrolls in on-site job training classes and receives job readiness services including search strategies, resume writing, and interview preparation. Clients also receive on-site support services such as telephone and fax access, voicemail, a message center, clothing and transportation for interviews, and a temporary address for contact information by prospective employers. Clients work closely with their Employment Specialist to construct an individualized employment plan to pursue short- and long-term goals and receive referrals for housing, child-care and/or health services.

Since 1984, Chrysalis has assisted over 58,000 individuals, providing them with a hand-up, rather than a hand-out at three centers located where pockets of poverty are most pervasive: Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and the San Fernando Valley.
