Reminisce The Wonderful Past

Wow, look at (God).
9 years ago we had an opportunity to move from our small office in the University District on Puritan in Detroit MI. In that office, we had 3 desks, one for our CEO, one for our ED, and one for our Program Coordinator.
We were still only renting one office but we had more access to the building. We had access to their conference room, multi-purpose room, classrooms, and the Hall of Nations where our CEO Jason Wilson. was able to expand and house the CATTA (Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy).
We went from leasing one office to three offices and a storage room. We were in the space for 8 years and it got to a point where that space couldn’t meet our needs anymore.
You fast forward 9 years later (present-day) we now have our own building with 3 offices, storage, room for program space, health and wellness room, room for the computer lab, room for a music studio and a training area for the CATTA.
As we’ve been faithful, consistent, and persistent in answering the call of servicing Youth and Families in the Metro Detroit area Yah (God) has been faithful in blessing us and expanding our territory. We don’t take that lightly or for granted.
This #throwbackthursday we want to acknowledge all the staff that has helped us get this far and all the families and youth that have allowed us to serve them we want to thank God.
