Charity Navigator relies on donations from users like you.
Dear Reader: Did you know that we never charge charities to be rated on our site? This allows us to maintain independence and conduct unbiased evaluations. If everyone reading this now donated $5, our website would be sustained for years to come. If Charity Navigator is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and free for another year.
Charity Navigator is a nonprofit too. We rely on donations. If everyone reading this donated $5, we could keep it online for another year.

Since our start in 1984, we have helped over 60,000 individuals change their lives through jobs. Chrysalis' three 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 currently help over 4,000 people a year change their lives through jobs.
