Eradicating Poverty Through Workforce Training, Resource Support, Job Placement, And Retention Coaching

Cara Collective seeks to fuel a courageous national movement to eradicate relational and financial poverty. With our four entities, we engage job seekers, employers, and other organizations across the country to break the cycle of poverty through the power and purpose of employment. Cara provides free workforce training, job placement, and personal and professional coaching to pave the way for gainful employment. Cleanslate creates transitional job opportunities and provides communities with litter abatement, graffiti removal, power washing, and landscaping services. Cara Connects sources quality job candidates to fill critical entry-level and temporary positions at leading Chicago-area companies. Cara Plus engages nonprofits and companies to grow diverse, inclusive workforce practices so everyone has access to quality employment. Since 1991, more than 7,900 people have been placed into more than 12,900 jobs and started on their path to self-sufficiency.
