About Us

CARE stands for Credit Abuse Resistance Education. CARE is a national non-profit comprised of professionals in bankruptcy, financial services, and business. We volunteer our time to educate young adults and others about the benefits of personal financial management and the consequences of credit abuse. Borrowing from our professional experiences, we tell true stories about financial distress and the impact it can have on one’s life.



  • “I really appreciated Dick’s presentation to the youth group.  He did great and they were engaged.  Some took notes and even asked Dick to back up twice to let them write down some of the information from the slides.  After the program, a couple of them came up to Dick and asked follow-up questions.”
