the back story
The Chrysalis Scholars Program launched in April 2015 under the umbrella of Saving Grace of NWA, a transitional housing program in Rogers, AR. Thanks to the initial investment of the Walmart Foundation, Saving Grace was able to expand its mission to support both men and women through this new initiative. While some Scholars may be eligible for housing through the Saving Grace program, it is not a requirement for participation in the Chrysalis Scholars Program.
why the name chrysalis?
A "chrysalis" is the hard protective covering for a caterpillar as it is in the process of becoming a butterfly. The Chrysalis Scholars program strives to serve as a protective covering that will enable young adults who have experienced foster care to reach their fullest potential.
