Changing How Categories are Displayed

I’ve been doing a little bit of digging, but to no avail. I’ve toyed with a number of various options and haven’t found what I’m looking for. Ultimately, I’m trying to display our categories in a manner similar to the screen shot below. I’d love to create groups of categories as displayed.
