Chrysalis

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. We are thrilled to announce the opening of our Orange County center coming this Fall 2018!

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 Orange County 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. We have multiple volunteer opportunities to teach a job readiness class to a group of eager and motivated individuals ready to learn and find work!

  • Class Facilitation requires a minimum weekly or bi-weekly commitment of 2 hours, either from 9:30 am-11:30 am or 1:15 pm - 3:15 pm
  • Training is provided

We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of our Orange County location in Anaheim! Volunteers are currently needed Monday through Thursday during the hours of 8 am-12 pm or 1 pm-4 pm or Fridays 8 am-12 pm. We have weekly and bi-weekly opportunities available. Please note, you must be 18 or over to volunteer.

Are you ready to help change the lives of our clients? If so, head on over to our website and submit an application to volunteer: https://changelives.org/volunteer/

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.
