Do It

Give a hand up, not a hand out

Amy Fierstein

December 3, 2013

Each year, thousands of homeless and low-income people walk through Chrysalis' doors and are given the opportunity to change their lives through employment. Chrysalis offers a hand up, not a hand out, to help get people on the pathway to self-sufficiency.

There's a lot of power in a Chrysalis hour. Please consider how many life-changing hours you can fund:

$25 = one hour of computer training
$50 = two hours of practice interviews
$100 = four hours of resume writing assistance

The minute it will take you to make a gift today will create hours of change for the 3,800 men and women Chrysalis serves each year.
