When we work together,
    we can all go further

Together, we can build a more inclusive economy.

We believe that inclusive employment builds upon traditional diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, whereby employers proactively flex how they hire and cultivate historically overlooked talent pools.

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. We can help with talent. We need you to help with the opportunities.


Looking for qualified, motivated entry-level talent? We have a team ready to take the headaches out of sourcing and find you the next members of your team.


Want to build a more inclusive workforce, but struggling to find the way? Join us for peer-based learning that translates DEI principles into practice.


Want your employees to feel the power of community connection? Partner with us for service opportunities and see firsthand how we are all in this together.

How we work with companies

We have several ways for employers to strengthen their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts through inclusive employment:

Hire Our Talent

Our participants are motivated and ready to work and stay on the job – and we are here to support them through at least their first year of employment with you.


Fill Temporary Roles

Fulfill your organization’s short-term and long-term hiring needs with a Cara Connects candidate. Our workers are ready to hit the ground running for you.


Develop Our Talent

Join the ranks of other employers, like C&W Services, who layer their custom training into ours. Together, we can co-create a more steady talent pool for your job opportunities.


Deepen DEI

Strengthen your DEI efforts by learning actionable steps and approaches your organization can take to attract, hire, and cultivate diverse talent, with a focus on high-quality, overlooked talent pools.


Screen The Road Up

Hold a screening and guided discussion at your firm about the documentary The Road Up and explore the structural barriers significant portions of our workforce face in finding and keeping employment.


Engage Your Team

Bring your team together for a motivating day that helps further our mission. Activities include mock interviews and career fairs, resume building, and organizing our clothing room.


  • “Cara is the gold standard of community organizations that come alongside the job candidate, meet their individual needs, place them in transitional employment, and then transition them to meaningful jobs. ”
