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.
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.
We have many volunteer opportunities for community members who are interested in donating their time to work in Catalyst’s programs.Learn More
Community Education & Outreach
At Catalyst, we acknowledge the importance of prevention work in the domestic violence field. We are committed to providing education about domestic violence and healthy relationships to the Butte County community.
Presentations are the most common form of education provided by Catalyst, and generally focus on promoting healthy relationships, preventing abusive relationships, and increasing access to services. They typically include interactive and pre-developed curriculum for specific ages or populations, including high school, middle school, and K-2nd grades.
In addition to community presentations, Catalyst also facilitates professional trainings, a weekly healthy relationships group at Butte County Juvenile Hall, and events promoting Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Teen Dating Violence awareness Month.
