The mission of Catalyst is to reduce the incidence of intimate partner violence through crisis intervention services, community education and the promotion of healthy relationships.
Welcome to Catalyst Domestic Violence Services
Catalyst is a nonprofit organization committed to serving the needs of all victims of domestic violence and their children regardless of ethnicity, citizenship, language, religion, physical disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity or HIV status.
At Catalyst we love and value all of our volunteers. Without our volunteers, we could not function as an agency. If you click on the Volunteer tab you can learn about all the different programs where our volunteers offer support.
We partner with Chico State University and provide internships to many different majors. The Psychology, Health Education, Social Work, and Sociology departments are just a few that we work with to offer students work experience and in return, our dedicated volunteers provide advocacy and support services to our participants.
Many volunteers are also caring citizens who want to contribute to their community and to support people who are in crisis. Our volunteers come from different educational, age, socioeconomic, ethnic, gender, and cultural backgrounds.
Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love. - Martin Luther King Jr.
