Chrysalis House: Building a Community, One Family at a Time…


More than 40 years and counting—that’s how long Chrysalis House has been saving families. We could not do it without the generous support of the community. Chrysalis House specializes in treating substance dependent expecting mothers, allowing them to keep their newborns and toddlers with them while in treatment.

In late 2018, Chrysalis House will open its fourth residential treatment facility for women and their children on the Eastern State Hospital campus. The 11,000 square ft. building, will provide a safe, nurturing and aesthetically pleasing environment much like the other Chrysalis House residential programs. In partnership with the University of Kentucky, College of Nursing, Beyond Birth program we will provide specialized services to pregnant and parenting women. The Beyond Birth program is located in the building next to Chrysalis House on the Eastern State Hospital campus allowing for easy access to medical services that are ideal for pregnant and parenting women and children.




Our name, Chrysalis, represents the protected stage of growth the caterpillar must enter before emerging as a butterfly. Chrysalis House provides a safe, nurturing environment where recovering women may reside while undergoing a similar life changing process.
