Habitat Company & Cara Collective Success Stories


Robert was having difficultly holding a job and would find himself getting into trouble at work. He knew he could be better, and that his mistakes didn’t define him. Once he found Cara and got the skills to land a janitorial position at Elm Street Plaza, he finally got the structure and financial stability he was looking for. Since Cara and Habitat took a chance on him, he was able to unlock the potential that had always been there. 


Aldena always knew she wanted a position like the one she found at Mahalia Jackson Apartments. She made a name for herself working in temporary Habitat jobs, trying to secure that ideal role. After putting in many hours of hard work, she landed a great position through Cara Connects as an Administrative Assistant. Now, she feels like she can really support herself and her family, and has more confidence than ever before. Aldena says that Habitat and Cara are the best duo around for job seekers like her.


Alex was bouncing around from job to job, never feeling fulfilled. He always worried about not having the means to provide for his daughter. After he worked with Cleanslate by Cara, he gained the experience he needed to land a Janitorial Position with Habitat at Sawyer Gardens Apartments. He says this job has transformed his and his daughters life. He now has benefits, a higher income, paid-days off, and a better quality of life. He is grateful for the endless support from Habitat and Cara.
