Donate to Cara

Thank you for considering a gift to Cara (which includes Cleanslate and Cara Connects). Your investment will help to prepare and inspire hundreds of motivated individuals to break the cycles of homelessness and poverty, transform their lives, strengthen our communities, and forge paths to real and lasting success.

Please consider becoming a Monthly Motivator with a recurring donation. By participating, you can spread your charitable giving throughout the year and help Cara allocate resources to best meet our students' needs. A donation of just $10 per month ($120 a year) could provide a Cara student with an interview ready suit and transportation to and from our facility while they train to become job ready.

Every dollar makes a difference and every job begins a path to success. So, thank you for considering a donation to Cara in support of our motivated job seekers and our mission.

If you would like to mail a check, please make it payable to Cara and send to:
Attn: Development
237 S. Desplaines
Chicago, IL 60661

You can also make a donation by phone at 312-798-3331.
