About Chrysalis Inc
Chrysalis promotes mental health recovery in our community by supporting work opportunities that encourage hope, healing, and wellness.
Chrysalis, Inc. has been serving the Madison community since 1980 as a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The founders wanted to avoid following a trend at the time, that was to provide mental health support in sheltered workshops. These founders believed that real-life experiences were more powerful and lasting than those consisting of isolated and confined interactions. Therefore, the Chrysalis Supported Employment and Vocational Peer Support Programs emerged and, to this day, Chrysalis focuses on providing community-based vocational support services.
Chrysalis is governed by a board of directors, has six full-time employment staff positions and five certified peer support positions. Chrysalis has an operating budget of $750,000. Chrysalis provides vocational support services to over 150 Dane County residents with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Chrysalis is funded by Dane County Department of Human Services, the Wisconsin Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Community Shares of Wisconsin and community donors. 87% of all funds go directly to program-related costs.
