ANAHEIM, Calif. (Nov. 13, 2018) — Anaheim's newest nonprofit partner, Chrysalis, today opened its doors to people living in homelessness in Anaheim and Orange County.
Chrysalis helps those living in homelessness by removing barriers to employment and helping them find — and keep — meaningful jobs.
The new Chrysalis office, located at 290 S. Anaheim Blvd., occupies 8,000 square feet in a city-owned building next to City Hall. The building formerly housed the Anaheim Workforce Development and California's Employment Development Department offices.
Clients coming to Chrysalis will find a variety of services available to them.
Employment specialists help clients get connected with services and resources to help them break down employment barriers. Services can include mental health counseling, financial resources, women's empowerment programs, support groups and more.
A resource room is filled with men's and women's clothing that people can wear to a job interview.
A computer lab has 12 stations open to anyone looking for a job.
Chrysalis will begin serving Anaheim and Orange County clients at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14.
Since 2014, Anaheim has helped more than 1,400 people in Anaheim transition out of homelessness.
But we haven't done it alone.
Through a network of nonprofits and community partners, we've brought creative solutions to address homelessness in Anaheim and Orange County.
Chrysalis will continue building upon Anaheim's full service, wrap-around approach to address homelessness.
