2018 Rev. Richard Schuster Advocacy Award.


Career Resources is very proud of Caitlin Mongillo and Justin Williams for receiving the Rev. Richard Schuster Advocacy Award, part of the Partnership for Strong Communities’ Annual Reaching Home Housing Awards. The Rev. Richard Schuster Advocacy Award recognizes a professional or volunteer who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to raising awareness about the needs of individuals and families currently/in danger of experiencing homelessness, using either legislative or client-centered advocacy.


Either through direct work with people experiencing homelessness, managing local programs, or organizing advocacy, they’ve had a strong and positive impact in efforts to end homelessness. As managers of the Secure Jobs CT pilot project, Caitlin and Justin work with families eligible for Rapid Re-housing in Fairfield County, connecting them with the resources and training they need to secure sustainable employment and dependable housing.

Caitlin and Justin have brought compassion, tenacity, and problem-solving skills to serve their clients over the three years of the Secure Jobs pilot project, and in the process they have built a collaborative environment of supportive services that can be leveraged throughout the region. We thank them for embodying the best of what CRI has to offer!
