ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 1, 2018) — Great news for Anaheim’s ongoing work to provide pathways out of homelessness.

Los Angeles-based nonprofit Chrysalis, which helps transition people from homelessness to work by helping to prepare them for finding and keeping employment, has announced plans to expand to Orange County.

“The dignity of a day’s work has the power to transform lives,” Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait said. “We have seen this with our innovative community volunteer program Better Way Anaheim. After learning about the great work of Chrysalis, I invited them to help us further expand into a full-fledged permanent jobs initiative as a pathway out of homelessness. We look forward to this partnership.”

Anaheim is in talks with Chrysalis about locating in the city and partnering with us on an employment program expected to start in the fall.

This would be Chrysalis’ first center outside Los Angeles County, where it has operations in downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Pacoima.
