Board of Directors

Message from Chairman of the Board

Welcome to Chrysalis Center’s website. I hope you find the site informative in learning about the mission and services Chrysalis Center provides in Greater Hartford.

Chrysalis Center provides an array of community–based services to a wide range of individuals – individuals who struggle to overcome mental illness, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, homelessness and other life barriers.  Chrysalis Center strives for each client in our services to reach his/her full potential- to live independently in their community, gain employment, becoming healthy and living strong in their recovery.

Our management team, staff and board of directors are proud of the work Chrysalis Center does in assisting those in our services;  getting help… getting back.


Jean K. Wagner
