Benefits That Benefit You

True Work-Life Balance

At Caritas, we value personal time and family life because they are essential for people's well-being. While we are passionate about our work, we believe that work and life can be separate without compromising the success of our mission.

Office-centric hybrid work model

While our residential roles require team members to be on location, many of our available positions operate under an office-centric hybrid work model that offers flexible hours, and frequent remote work. We know everyone has different needs and this helps our staff balance their work and personal lives.

403 B Retirement Plan with Employer Match

We understand the value of a solid financial foundation for you and your family. To help establish that foundation, we offer a 5% matching contribution to your retirement savings plan, on top of your regular salary.

Health, Dental & Vision Insurance Coverage

Good health is also essential to your well-being. Caritas provides a variety of comprehensive health, dental, and vision coverage options to ensure you have the right plan for your individual and family needs.

Paid Time Off

Everyone needs time to rest, recharge and rejuvenate. We encourage you to utilize the paid time off and 12 paid state & federal holidays we offer to spend time with your family and get the rest you need.

Tuition Assistance Program

Pursue your educational goals, increase your skills, and advance your career with help through our tuition assistance program.

Real Work-Life Balance

Hello! This is Caritas CEO, Gary Huelsmann and I’d like to say thank you for considering us. Some organizations may talk about providing work-life balance, but at Caritas we actually do it! We believe that when schedules get out of balance, people get out of balance. Taking regular time away from work helps keep us all energized, renewed, and more ready to take on the challenges that face our communities.
