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.

Our 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. Offering a hand up, rather than a hand out, Chrysalis empowers our clients to complete a self-directed job search.

YOU can make a real difference in the lives of the men and women in Los Angeles who are willing, ready, and able to become self-sufficient through employment.

Chrysalis volunteers play an integral role in empowering clients to build specific skills related to the job search process and instilling the self-esteem needed to succeed beyond the interview. There are many ways that volunteers help to support our programs, including:

  • One-on-one resume preparation
  • One-on-one practice interviews
  • Class facilitation
  • Computer lab assistance
