The Cara Program was founded in 1991 by entrepreneur and philanthropist Tom Owens.
Since its inception, we have placed over 3,250 individuals into quality, permanent employment (at one-year job retention rates of 77%), catalyzing the same number of families to stop the transfer of poverty from one generation to the next. In addition, The Cara Program boasts two social enterprises – one in neighborhood beautification and the other in property preservation* – that achieve a triple bottom line: over $2 million in revenue annually, more than 250 transitional jobs per year for the hardest to employ, and a steady stream of permanent jobs created within our own growing business.
