March 3, 2017

Curtis_Maude“Never underestimate the power of having a sense of purpose and the tools and skills it takes to achieve your goals.” These words from Chef Curtis Stone’s bio reflect the way Chrysalis feels about the importance of everyone having access to the resources they need to succeed – regardless of their past. And for the people we serve at Chrysalis, one of those goals is a job.

At Chrysalis, we believe that job is not only about income. It serves as a catalyst for self-sufficiency, housing stability, increases self-esteem, and improves physical and mental health. With that said, we are thrilled to announce that Chrysalis has been selected as Chef Stone’s #Commit2One partner for 2017!

The #Commit2One pledge kicked off in 2016 when Chef Stone and his team decided to act on their desire to give back to their community. By focusing their resources on one cause each year, Chef Stone and his team are excited to be able to “[give] back in a deeper way.”

Throughout 2017, Chef Stone will be supporting Chrysalis in several ways – stay tuned to social media for new announcements.

Chef has a lot cooking in the kitchen but there is one secret ingredient that we can share with you right now. Click here to meet Darrell, the first Chrysalis client hired to work at Maude. That’s right – Chef Stone has been hiring Chrysalis clients for a few years now.

Restaurant owner Chef Curtis Stone admires Darrell’s infectious positive attitude, which he says “flows through everyone in the team.” Darrell became Maude’s head porter before Chef Stone moved him over to his new restaurant Gwen, where he is once again central to the team. Since being hired three years ago, Darrell has been promoted from hourly pay to salary and assists with training new hires.

Chef Stone has continued to hire reliable employees who have come through our program – 7 of whom Darrell manages!

The opportunity to have a hiring relationship with restaurants such as Maude and Gwen is a blessing for Chrysalis. Chef Stone recognizes Chrysalis’ unique ability to pair clients with the resources they need overcome barriers to employment and successfully transition to new opportunities. We are truly honored to be his #Commit2One partner for 2017, and we look forward to changing many lives through jobs with Chef Stone’s support!
