Young, 59, became homeless following a string of devastating events that derailed his life. He lost several loved ones and sustained life-altering injuries in a traumatic car accident, which led him to become addicted to prescription drugs. From that point, Young fell into a downward spiral. He lost his housing and spent years in and out of prison. Upon his most recent release in February 2023, a switch flipped, and Young set three goals for himself: sobriety, housing, and employment.

Young connected with Chrysalis Enterprises through the LA County Department of Economic Opportunity, where he began meeting with an employment specialist, working in a transitional employment role full time, and earning consistent income through Chrysalis. He looks forward to using his transitional employment experience to secure a long-term, meaningful job that meets his financial goals and enables him to maintain housing stability.
