Our Leadership Team

We call (Kent Robson) the 'Eli whisperer' because he has a knack for being able to get him to do whatever needs to be done. What Kent has done with Eli is nothing short of a miracle. - Angela (Eli's mother)

We are so thankful for the impact that (Dr. Paul Cates) has had on our family and the educating of Grace. Things would not have turned out so well if God had not brought you into our lives. - Laura (mother of Grace)

(Dr. Webb) is fantastic! I would like to be more like her, not just with patients but also as a mom! Thank you. - Corrie

C.A.T.E.S. Academy – Co-Founder & Head Master Kent Robson

Kent Robson has extensive experience in Non-Profit Management, Fund Development & Business Development. For 30 years, he has worked in numerous leadership roles in Non-Profit organizations. In 2013, as CEO of Salem4Youth, a Faith Based Residential Program in Illinois for young men, ages 12-17, he continually saw the desperation of families at their wits end. He has years of experience working with youth and families and ‘understands the pulse’ of a family in crisis.

Because of his vision to give families help and hope, specifically to adoptive youth and families, in August 2013, Kent and his wife Karen moved to Nashville, TN to develop 4Families, Inc.  and C.A.T.E.S. Academy. (C.A.T.E.S. Academy is a creation of 4Families, Inc.)

Kent and his wife Karen have 4 children and 5 grandchildren.
