About Nonprofit

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 handout, Chrysalis empowers our clients to complete a self-directed job search. Our services help low-income and homeless individuals across Los Angeles County to prepare for, find, and retain employment. For over 30 years, we provide the tools and support necessary so they can succeed in the job market for the rest of their lives.

Mission Statement

We envision a community in which everyone has the opportunity to work and thrive.
