Vision of Catalyst Community

Our vision is to see every area and region inspired with a greater sense of community, collaboration, and citizenship through meaningful relationships.

*community - the tangible experience of relationships within connected people

*collaboration - the cooperative partnerships of individuals and organizations around a common interest or purpose

*citizenship - the expression of hospitality towards our neighbors and the participation of residents in shaping our community

Our core approach to community development is through meaningful relationships. A common cause may bring people together, but it's relationships that keep people together. The goal should be something sustainable and long-lasting. Often times, organizations will host an event that brings people together but few stay meaningfully connected after the event. We believe that effective and long lasting partnership can't occur without trust; we can't have trust without relationships.

So that's where we start.
