Teaming up with three other small Los Angeles-based companies to supplement Catalyst funds, Catalyst has successfully assisted eight families this year including support for nine children in foster homes, as well as aid for three unhoused families. The collaborative effort not only provides essential items but also extended into financial assistance for security deposit and the first month's rent for transitional housing for one of the unhoused families. Spearheaded by Catalyst CFO, Megan Schwartz, our team worked with the social workers to identify family needs and wants, and shopped, built bikes, beds, and dressers, wrapped everything and delivered everything to the families by mid-December.
We are proud of our ability to have a direct and positive social impact and help our neighbors living in our community. Happy holidays from our team to yours!
