The Magical Builders renovation of the Chrysalis Transitional Housing Facility in Scottsdale, Arizona includes the transformation of the community kitchen, outdoor recreational area, landscaping, lighting, painting, furniture and other amenities and improvements.
Lowe’s volunteer day – Tuesday, February 23, 2021. Completion/ribbon cutting ceremony – March 2021.
The project was made possible by the support of the Crain Family Foundation, which was founded by Jesse and Becky Crain. Jesse is a former Major League Baseball Player who was elected to the MLB All Star Game in 2013. The Crain Family Foundation was formed to assist families and children experiencing financial hardship.
Other generous supporters include Lowe’s Home Improvement, Ashley Furniture, National Restaurant Supply, Snell & Wilmer L.L.P, JB Home Design, Concierge Service, Sorso Wine Room, the Selva Family, the Arizona Coyotes, and other companies and individuals.
The Chrysalis Transitional Housing Facility provides safe housing, safety planning and case management support for families that are victims of domestic violence who need time to work towards self-sufficiency, including vocational/educational programs and counseling. The facility was originally built in 1988 as a shelter and has been in constant use since it was converted in 2011 to five dorm style apartments with a community kitchen to meet the growing need for longer term safe housing. The facility and the women, children and men it serves will greatly benefit from the Magical Builders renovation.
