So, who is Chrysalis, you may be asking? Our sometimes hard-to-pronounce name is a nod to the transformations and new beginnings that happen when someone is empowered with the tools they need to get back to work. We are a local nonprofit dedicated to helping individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty overcome barriers to employment and reconnect to the workforce. Our 35 years of experience have shown us over and over again that self-sufficiency begins with securing a steady job.


You and a friend are invited to learn more about Chrysalis all while growing your network.Drop by for coffee, a light breakfast, and get a deeper look at Chrysalis and opportunities for you to become involved with social change in your community! Some quick notes:


  • Last year, 2,100 Chrysalis clients secured employment, while another 1,400 worked a transitional job directly with one of Chrysalis’ social enterprises—including the newly launched Venice Beach BID.
  • Don’t just take our word for it! At the event, you will hear from our President & CEO Mark Loranger and our Santa Monica Site Director. Chrysalis client Garrick will also be there to share a firsthand account of his journey from working a transitional job with our Staffing business before going on to provide full-time outreach to L.A. County’s unsheltered citizens. Now that’s an example of lives changed!


We look forward to coming together with friends of Chrysalis – both new and old – and your guests. Parking is available in promenade garage #7 (the first 90 minutes are free).
