Who We Are

Our Vision

At Chrysalis, our belief is simple: No abuse is okay.

With this as our guide, we are focused on helping individuals and families break free of relationships riddled with fear and violence, and discover confidence, resilience and hope.

We offer comprehensive resources, confidential support, free information and accessible help. With each family, we listen, learn and adapt to meet the unique needs of those impacted by domestic violence. Our work is never done, and neither is our willingness to grow and respond to this complex issue.

Since we opened our doors 40 years ago, we have helped more than 1,600 people each year reclaim their independence and self-esteem. Our vision is to keep paving that pathway for more to do the same.

What We Believe

Who we are is a combination of why we began, who we aim to empower, and how we strive to do it. From day to day operations to long-term planning, Chrysalis is rooted in approaching every individual’s situation with empathy, openness, dedication and transparency.

We are here to serve, guide and help everyone who enters our site or doors. If you are here, we are here for you.
