Catalyst has openings in our transitional housing Cottage Program. We have two cottages, which are 2 bedroom/1 bath and have a maximum occupancy of 4 persons.

    A couple of things to note:
  • Applicants need not be a participant in Catalyst services, but should identify as a victim of intimate partner violence
  • Applicants must be employed or be currently enrolled in school or a training program, OR if applicants are permanently disabled must have a self-sufficiency plan
  • Please inform interested parties that the cottages are located in our housing program, which is a safe and confidential location
