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

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month
In 2010, as part of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), Congress declared the entire month of February as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. We are living in a world where one in three students report experiencing some form of abuse and more than 2/3 never report that abuse to a caring adult. Many teens are in relationships with unhealthy habits such as extreme jealousy, lack of communication, lack of trust, and lack of privacy, especially in the age of social media and smart phones.
One of the largest barriers for teen victims is a lack of awareness of resources and services. Please share Catalyst’s website and Facebook page through email or social media. Help shine some light on the issue of teen dating violence. If you are interested in booking a Teen Dating Violence presentation for your classroom or youth organization, please call us at 530-343-7711 or visit our community education page.
