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.

If you are experiencing abuse in your relationship, Catalyst can help. Our advocates are available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist you in the event of a crisis.

In addition to direct services and outreach, Catalyst is also able to provide referrals to other resources, organizations, and agencies.

1 in 3 people will experience relationship abuse in their lifetime. Catalyst is here to support all survivors of domestic violence, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, education level, social status, country of origin, age, religion, or ethnicity.

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.

We host volunteer trainings 3 times a year. Click on our “Volunteer” tab to sign up today!
