A Building for the Future!

$79,703 of $114,000 goal

Raised by 1,637 people in 26 months

The Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy (CATTA) based in Detroit Michigan has been transforming the lives of boys and young men since 2008 (Videos Below).  Our mission is to create a generation of men who are physically conscious, mentally astute and spiritually strong enough to navigate through the pressures of this world without succumbing to their negative emotions.

Last year after our first video went viral with over 70 million views worldwide, there has been an astounding demand to expand and replicate our academy. Currently our local waiting list is now over 350,  but with limited facility space, we cannot open enrollment. 

We need your support! Please help us to transform the lives of boys and young men both nationally and around the world. The CATTA's expansion will include:

• Purchase of a larger building to open enrollment (currently there's over 350 students on our waiting list). Below is the building we desire to purchase. It is perfect for the CATTA's  expansion!


• Create the model to scale the Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy (CATTA) nationally

• Complete the CATTA's train-the-trainer curriculum to certify future local and national instructors of the CATTA

• Contruct Videocasting studio to implement virtual online training for students, parents, adults and academia 

• Purchase training equipment 

• Purchase (25) twenty five computers for study hall

A BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE

BREAKING THROUGH EMOTIONAL BARRIERS

A VILLAGE OF FATHERS

OVERCOMING BULLYING


PARENTING WITHOUT YELLING

We were able to secure a low interest mortgage for the building. This means that half of the money we initially needed as down payment for a Purchase Money Mortgage (Land Contract), can now go towards renovations! So we are closing this GoFundMe campaign because together WE DID IT!

Thank you everyone who sacrificially gave to make this a reality for not only the over 370 boys on our waiting list but also build a replicable model of our academy to be scaled nationally!

We are close to finalizing the Purchase Agreement and should be able to start inspections in the coming weeks. Please find below our prayer requests:

• Please pray that the inspections go well during the Due Diligence period for our purchase agreement

• Please pray that we are able to get the existing tax exempt status on the building transferred into our non-profit’s name, The Yunion. This is crucial.
TOGETHER WE DID IT!

While we are waiting to sign the purchase agreement and begin the due diligence period, I wanted to share with you the layout for the 3rd floor training area for The Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy! Thanks as always for the awe-inspiring support and please continue to share our GoFundMe, we are close to our goal! www.gofundme.com/cave313

More great news everyone! The owner of the building has lowered our down payment so that we can have more money for renovations! This allows us to sign the purchase agreement in the coming weeks and if everything passes inspection during the due diligence period, we will possibly take over the property in early March! Please continue to share this campaign. We now only need $39,572 to meet our fundraising goal! Thank you all again for your awe-inspiring support. It appears we are about to make this building for the future a reality!

Can we commit to sponsoring a boy through your training? How much would that cost per month/ and for how long? Apparently, we can do this through GoFundMe. Another platform on which you might reach out for donations is https://www.patreon.com

Fantastic & SO necessary. Maybe a training program for other leaders & mentors to follow suit in other cities? That may spread this phenomenal service more quickly, if it's franchised? Just a thought. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make a way to bring this to Baltimore... Proud of you. Keep up the good work, sir.
