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 our start in 1984, we have helped over 60,000 individuals change their lives through jobs. Chrysalis' four main service centers are located where homelessness and pockets of poverty are most pervasive: in Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and in the Pacoima area of the San Fernando Valley. We also offer employment services at the DOORS office within the Reentry Opportunity Center in South Los Angeles. We currently help over 4,000 people a year change their lives through jobs.
