Cara inspires motivated people to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty and forge paths to sustainable, successful lives.
The Irish word for ‘friend,’ Cara gives a second chance to people ready to turn their lives around, focusing on job training and skills. Sometimes, all a person needs is a friend to say “I believe in you.” And that is precisely what Cara does, along with providing a training model to give their students the tools to be successful.
