Founded in 2002 by a US Bankruptcy Judge, Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) was created to teach students about the responsible use of credit and the consequences of credit card abuse. CARE was turned over to the American Bankruptcy Institute, where it expanded into a nationally branded organization. In 2016, CARE received its 501(c)(3) status and has emerged as a national nonprofit community service organization dedicated to inspiring smart financial decision making by students and young adults.

Program Overview

CARE volunteers from bankruptcy and financial service communities (judges, trustees, attorneys, financial advisors…) visit schools and give presentations on how to manage finances responsibly, focusing on credit, budgeting, student loans and more. We provide real life examples to help students avoid pitfalls that can jeopardize their financial futures. CARE Denver tries to accommodate as much of the region as our volunteers can cover, which includes the Cheyenne, WY area. We have a fantastic team in Denver and Cheyenne, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can work with you this school year. Request a FREE presentation today! In-person and virtual presentations are available at your request. Email questions to
