Catalyst’s innovative non-profit developer model has made it possible to add 49 brand new affordable rental homes in Victoria. I want to say how proud I am, as Mayor of Victoria, of this project. This is perfection.

Catalyst is aptly named. Their work with our organization has been instrumental in helping us to unlock latent potential, address chronic gaps in service and look toward a future with greater opportunity for the people we serve.

When I met Catalyst I knew that I was with people who understood the vision I was presenting and that we shared many of the same goals. Proof of this is our work together as joint venture partners.
