2017 ANNUAL REPORT
the road ahead
I N T RO D U C T I O N
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. Dear Chrysalis Supporter, This past year marked the first year of Chrysalis’ new strategic plan, in which we set the ambitious goal to double our client employment outcomes by 2021. Driven by this goal, we set out to do more and do better throughout our organization, and what resulted was a truly remarkable year for our clients and our community. On the following pages, you will read about our clients’ accomplishments, the growth in our staff, the dedication of our volunteers, and how our community has stepped up as never before to focus on ending homelessness. You share in our success, and we thank you for joining Chrysalis on this journey to change lives through jobs. Last year, 1,700 Chrysalis clients secured employment, while another 1,100 worked a transitional job within Chrysalis Enterprises – a total increase of 22 percent over 2016. A key marker for success is job retention, and for the third year in a row, more than 70 percent of clients reached were still employed six months after landing a job. 12
The demand for our services has never been higher. In 2017, Chrysalis experienced a 14 percent increase in the number of people coming through our doors, while participation in our social enterprise’s transitional jobs program grew by 57 percent. Employers seeking to engage in fair chance hiring reached out to us from across all sectors of the business community. And we created and hired key staff positions to support this growth and plan for future expansion. Several of these new staff positions helped focus our attention on community outreach and engagement. We added community partners to increase the resources available to our clients, and we supported policy initiatives that would bring additional funding to homeless services throughout Los Angeles County. At Chrysalis, we have always believed that our central focus on employment addresses an unmet need among an underserved population. Our approach to homelessness focuses on building, highlighting, and fortifying individuals’ skill sets and marketability to the workforce.
Today, we can confidently say that this approach is not a theoretical response to homelessness and poverty, but rather a proven formula for success, yielding results that have increased year after year. Improving the lives of those we serve and setting them on the path to self-sufficiency has always been – and remains – our core commitment at Chrysalis. With strong Board and staff leadership, we will continue to improve programs, carefully consider expansion opportunities, and invest in our organization to increase impact and change more lives. Our 2017 journey was amazing, but it has simply laid a solid foundation for the road ahead.
President & CEO
Jobs secured by Chrysalis clients in 2017:
1,700+ outside jobs* 1,100+ transitional jobs 2,800+ total jobs
increase from 2016
*Employment secured by a client outside of Chr ysalisâ€™ program or transitional job opportunities
C L I E N T D E M O G R A PH I C S
Most clients who have made the brave decision to come through our doors have traveled a bumpy road. While each of our clients are facing unique challenges to employment, they all have something in common: they want to change their life through a job. At Chrysalis, we work with clients one-on-one to identify not only the individual barriers they face to getting a job, but their unique skills and talents as well. This individualized approach empowers clients like Roderick to take the wheel during the job search, visualize a pathway to self-sufficiency, and confidently approach obstacles along the way – all with the safety net of Chrysalis’ staff, volunteers, and services close behind.
COMING HOME Recognizing that histories of homelessness and housing instability have a direct impact on an individual’s employment success, Chrysalis is proud that Los Angeles voters overwhelmingly supported Measure H to fund programming to address homelessness in our community – including programs that acknowledge employment and increases in income as part of the solution.

â€œ With the encouragement of my Employment Specialist

supported me, I was able to be
confident and strive for success.â€? RO D E R I C K , C U S TO D I A L T E C H N I C I A N
Roderick confidently presented his soon-to-be new employer with a polished resume and walked into his interview prepared thanks to practice sessions with a Chrysalis volunteer. Check out his bell ringing, and hear all about his new job on Facebook: @ChrysalisLA
Our clients shouldn’t have to pump the brakes during their job search because they don’t have interviewappropriate attire or funds for transportation. That’s where our array of supportive services comes in:
“ I had a real problem asking for
help. Something about Chrysalis made me want to listen. Now, it’s my turn to help others.”

Ernie connected with every resource he could during his job search. He received a scholarship from Chrysalis to renew his driver’s license, explored the unfamiliar territory of applying to jobs online with a volunteer, and worked through the emotional challenges of reentering the workforce – and society – after years in and out of prison with our on-site counselor: ChangeLives.org/Ernie

CO R E E M PLOY M E N T PRO G R A M “What do you want to do for work?” Sitting at Chrysalis, Ernie paused before answering his Employment Specialist. For the first time in 50 years, he felt empowered to plan for what he wanted in his future. Whether a client comes to us with specific goals in mind or never having considered what their professional journey might look like, Chrysalis’ core employment services are designed to support clients during every phase of their job search. Much like the transformation our clients experience as they gain confidence, set and achieve goals, and land a job, Chrysalis’ program continues to evolve from year to year to ensure that we are meeting our clients’ needs and staying up-to-speed with the dynamic job market. In fact, last year, we implemented a new service in which a client works with a volunteer to complete an online job application. For clients like Ernie, this support is essential to competing in today’s workforce. In 2017, staff and volunteers contributed to 24,712 hours of core curriculum instruction, helped write 2,503 resumes, and conducted 2,225 practice interviews. More than 1,700 clients landed outside jobs last year – and 70 percent of clients reached were still working after 6 months.

Since 2010, outside jobs landed by clients have increased by 57 percent, with more than 1,700 men and women securing employment with our support in 2017. And as we look back on the first completed year of our five-year strategic plan, we are pleased to be on track to meet our goal to double job outcomes by 2021.

For a Chrysalis client facing barriers to employment, a transitional job can be the right intervention that puts them on a pathway to success. A social enterprise* is an organization that addresses a basic or unmet need or solves a problem through a market-driven approach. Chrysalis was one of the first and leading nonprofits to add this component to our services in order to advance our mission of reconnecting people to the workforce. For Chrysalis clients facing barriers to employment, a transitional job can be the right intervention that puts them on a pathway to success. Three divisions of our social enterprise give Chrysalis clients the opportunity to earn a paycheck while developing soft skills, searching for an outside job, and working on other elements of their personal employment plan. *As defined by the Social Enterprise Alliance
