Chrysalis House in Lexington will receive $262,500 in grant money will help the facility treat women with substance abuse problems.

Chrysalis House is a non-profit residential facility for women with substance abuse.  Many of the individuals served by the facility are at significant risk for homelessness and incarceration due to their drug abuse problems. Chrysalis House programs provide basic residential stays to help women begin long-term recovery plans, while also supporting their children.   

Governor Steve Beshear says the facility’s need for funding is substantial, adding that in the past year, Chrysalis House has lost approximately $700,000 in federal funding and private donations despite the ongoing need for its services.   
 
Recovery Kentucky is an initiative to help Kentuckians recover from substance abuse, which often leads to chronic homelessness. The program was formed to create housing recovery centers across the state, providing services for those suffering from addiction.

The state’s CDBG program is administered by DLG and funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
