The CATCH organizational structure, which overlays and supports the coalition has evolved through different models in response to changing circumstances. A dedicated team of community participants called the Terms of Reference Team, worked hard on creating a new structure for CATCH that integrated outcomes of a community network workshop held in June 2004.
The structure is non-hierarchical coalition leadership model designed to reflect a number of values articulated at the June 2004 community network workshop. This facilitates fostering ownership and motivation, as well as promotion of equality, sustainability, accountability and participatory democracy.
The structure includes the following elements: 
  • Community Network: everyone with a stake/interest in early childhood development in the Central Okanagan
  • Action Teams: groups of people (individuals and organizations) participating in one of the core activities of CATCH . Action Teams focus on implementing strategies outlined in the CATCH Action Plan and play a part in the overall early childhood development movement
  • Integration Team: a group dedicated to promoting the CATCH vision and steering the collaborative work of the movement
  • Staff: CATCH has a Coalition Manager and staff to support the CATCH Action Plan
