Mission Statement

Leading our community to broad-based solutions to prevent domestic abuse.


For over 30 years, Chrysalis has been serving the needs of women, children and men throughout the Valley, who are trying to break the cycle of domestic violence and abuse. Chrysalis offers an array of services, including a 24-hour crisis shelter, transitional housing for up to 24 months, outpatient counseling, victim advocacy, lay legal advocacy, offender treatment, and community education and prevention programs. Women, children and men are taught to identify unhealthy relationships in their lives and seek proper help and assistance. With the services provided through Chrysalis, they are able to initiate positive changes in their lives and break away from verbal, physical, emotional, financial, and sexual abuse.

The number of lives affected by Chrysalis has grown four fold since its inception, with more than 1,400 individuals now being helped each year through the efforts of Chrysalis staff and volunteers. It is with the continued help of a concerned public that Chrysalis is able to sustain these critical services.

I have been involved with Chrysalis for over 25 years as a client, as a volunteer, and as a board member. This organization has both heart and soul for helping all of its clients no matter their gender or race or age or religion. I am very proud of my affiliation with Chrysalis and would encourage people who really want to help make a difference to volunteer here.

I have had the opportunity to work with the Chrysalis organization for three years. The staff is caring and compassionate, their dedication to the mission of the organization shows in everything they do. I would recommend Chrysalis to anyone who is looking to volunteer along side some amazing people!

This Place is HORRIBLE! Its Dirty and Dangerous. The Staff are Racist and Go Through and Steal your Things when you leave. When u call, they rush you off the phone or will just hang up in your face. They don't keep your wellness appts, your food is always stolen. If you dont comply with them, they will call CPS with false claims and have your children taken from you. They help all the white women with housing and clothing before they help the minorities. I had such a Sickening Experience here and hate to see any other women go through this If you really need help and Shelter I STRONGLY Suggest Any Place but this one.
