Embracing People’s Differences

At Catalight, we embrace people’s differences — both visible and invisible. And we believe everyone deserves to be understood, respected and celebrated for their many contributions. That’s why we have a bold vision to break down barriers and biases to create a more equitable world so people with developmental disabilities can choose their path.

We do this by providing access to innovative, individualized care services, clinical research and advocacy — all powered by our business partner, Xolv Technology Solutions™.

And, through the work of our affiliate partners, Easterseals Northern California and Easterseals Hawaii, we support people with disabilities and their families across their care journey.

Values-Driven Culture

Every day we are challenging the status quo, exploring new opportunities and learning from others in order to help those we serve find a better path forward. Guiding the way, our core values direct our strategies, decisions and how we use our resources. These values help us foster an inclusive and equitable culture where everyone can belong.
