Support Our Fundraiser

We are raising $150K to fund our Life Development and Career Training Program. The programs teaches tools and methods that promotes tranformational thinking, career development, and offers direct access to Labor Union Certification-Prep Training Program and upon passing testing, paid Apprenticeship and Certification Training.

A partnership to provide Cyber Security and Drone Piloting Certification Preparation Training has been offered to HATT. However, that would be appoximately an additional $200k just to cover computers and FAA equipment and about $100k to cover instructor and training materials.

Our trainings include Family Support Services. These services include family planning sessions, family coaching, and connection to resources. This is an automatic service with no cost to participants. Families are supported for up to 12 months with quarterly reviews.
