Meet LaVonne

Cara Staff

She’s transforming her life, thanks to your support.

“I moved back home to Chicago from Arkansas to regroup from a bad situation, get myself together, and get back to work. But, I needed help searching for and landing a job opportunity.

“A family member told me about how Cara would help me with job searching and my personal goals. My personal and professional goals go hand in hand – something I didn’t even think about before coming to Cara.

“On my first day, I quickly learned that Cara is a hard program because you are constantly improving yourself. If you put in what you need to for the Cara community to help you, it is a hard but rewarding journey.

“The biggest lesson I have learned is to be me and not to doubt myself anymore. I am the best me, and I want the best that life has to offer. I am a compassionate, outgoing, well-rounded person. I have a bubbly personality, and I can get along with anyone. 

I am starting to be comfortable in my own skin again, and I want other people to be comfortable in their skin too.

“My dream job is to be in customer service. I have the experience and skills to encourage people to make it a great day. People don’t necessarily have to remember my name, but hopefully they will remember how I made them feel.”

“I recently interviewed at East Bank Club. I believe this is the opportunity I have waited and worked for since coming to Cara.”

LaVonne was right! She nailed her interview and is now making everyone’s day great at East Bank Club as their Reception Desk Clerk. Way to go, LaVonne!
