OUR EMPLOYMENT PARTNERS

We work with those whose motivation matches ours

By sharing the same goals as Cara, the synergy created among all partners powers success. We align with businesses that want to hire, organizations and strategic partners that want to affect change, and individuals who want to do their part. Here are a few of the inspired, compassionate, and motivated we are proud to call partners:
Linking People, Jobs, & Communities
The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) runs an innovative program to employ people with significant barriers to employment through their Second Chance Program. Because of their commitment to provide training and employment to people facing obstacles so they can become more competitive in the workplace, Cara was proud to honor the CTA with The Good Neighbor Award in 2013.
Excellence Is Just the Beginning
Rush is an academic health system whose mission is to improve the health of the people and the diverse communities it serves through the integration of outstanding patient care, education, and research and community partnerships. As part of their anchor mission to improve communities, Rush has hired nearly two dozen Cara participants in a variety of permanent positions.
Building Value
ABM, one of the nation’s leading providers of facility solutions, is a strong and multi-dimensional partner to Cara and the certificate they award to graduates of their proprietary commercial janitorial course is widely respected within the industry. We honored ABM in 2014 for their unparalleled contribution as a financial investor and hiring and training partner.
Investment In Communities & Lives
The Habitat Company is a full-service residential real estate company committed to the highest standards in management, service, and development. In business for over four decades, Habitat is an anchor partner of our social enterprise, Cara Connects, providing not only entry-level positions for Cara participants to begin their careers, but also helping them advance into management.
