About the CARA Program:

Cara was founded in 1991 by entrepreneur and philanthropist, Tom Owens. Inspired by the good work of Mother Teresa and moved by the global challenges affronting the poor, Tom returned home and dedicated himself to empowering adults affected by homelessness and poverty to find quality employment. In its early days, Cara's office was Tom’s car – the vehicle he used to travel from shelter to shelter working with individuals one-on-one to prepare them for interviews and connect them with jobs.

Now, 25 years later, Cara has evolved as not only a best-in-class job training and placement provider for individuals affected by homelessness and poverty, but also a vehicle for true life transformation. Since its inception, Cara has placed more than 5,100 individuals into quality, permanent employment (at one-year job retention rates of 70%+), catalyzing the same number of families to stop the transfer of poverty from one generation to the next.
