Chrysalis

Chrysalis is a non-profit organization 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. The men and women who turn to Chrysalis often have multiple barriers to finding employment including homelessness, limited education, criminal records and substance abuse issues. Since 1984, we have assisted over 30,000 people on the path to self-sufficiency at three centers throughout Los Angeles County where poverty and homelessness are most pervasive: downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Pacoima in the San Fernando Valley.

Chrysalis volunteers play an integral role in our clients' success and provide direct services. They facilitate job readiness classes, provide computer skills training, prepare resumes and help clients practice their interview skills.

All Chrysalis volunteers will be required to attend an information session, receive training and ongoing evaluation, agree to confidentiality terms, and commit to a weekly schedule for at least 6 months.

Mission Statement

Chrysalis is a nonprofit organization 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. Since 1984, Chrysalis has assisted over 51,000 men and women regain their dignity and becoming self-sufficient through employment opportunities. Chrysalis operates three centers that are located where homelessness and poverty are most pervasive: on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and in the Pacoima area of the San Fernando Valley. Chrysalis' philosophy is that a steady job is the single most important step in a person's transition out of poverty and onto a pathway to long-term self-sufficiency. Through one-on-one Case Management, access to job-seeking resources and supportive services provided by volunteers, Chrysalis offers a hand up, rather than a hand out, to empower its clients to complete a self-directed job search.

Description

Chrysalis assists homeless and low-income individuals in securing employment by providing a program of classes on job search skills, job search resources (including computers, phones, resume assistance, etc.), and one on one case management with an Employment Specialist.
