Support for LGBTQ+ Survivors

We are committed to supporting the needs of all survivors of abuse.

Love = Respect

In alignment with our agency value of understanding the diversity of human experience, we recognize and respect each individual’s unique path in life with compassion and an open mind. We understand that domestic violence and sexual assault do not discriminate, and we are dedicated to supporting individuals of all gender identities, sexual orientations, and relationship dynamics, including those within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer, Questioning, and all other gender identities and sexual orientations (LGBTQ+). Catalyst staff and volunteers receive comprehensive training to better understand the dynamics and specific barriers faced by LGBTQ+ community members, ensuring that our services are inclusive and affirming. We are proud to welcome individuals who identify within the LGBTQ+ community to our staff.

Stonewall and Catalyst

Catalyst has formed a longstanding partnership with the Stonewall Alliance Center of Chico to increase access to services for Butte County’s LGBTQ+ community. Together, Stonewall and Catalyst collaborate on a range of LGBTQ+ inclusive events, focusing on celebrating identity, promoting healthy relationships, and providing educational opportunities to the community.

One notable partnership initiative includes planning for the annual Chico Pride Weekend, a series of events aimed at raising awareness and celebrating LGBTQ+ identities. If you are interested in learning more, please visit Stonewall’s website.
