Get Involved


We cannot do this without you! Please join us as a partner or donor in our efforts to help assure that our trainees receive a stipend while training, that there is sufficient oversight, and that we are able to purchase the blighted homes that will become new affordable housing. With your support, we can work together to make sure Catalyst4 can continue to help as many people in our community as possible!

Partner With Us

Catalyst4 depends on the support of our community partners to serve and educate our trainees, and to help us revitalize neighborhoods. We partner with construction and manufacturing companies, as well as banks and financial institutions, local governments, and organizations that provide or develop affordable housing or that offer mental health or drug and alcohol support.

Could your organization help? Please send us a message, or contact Catalyst4 Founder/Executive Director Diane Elliott at
