CAP Debt Center

Today, there are people in your community whose lives are being devastated as a result of debt.

People who are skipping meals so their kids can eat and who are on the verge of being evicted. They may be struggling to feed their families, suicidal, depressed and alone.

Partnering CAP’s service with the compassion of the local church is changing thousands of lives every year. Families are going debt free, coming to know God and finding a supportive church family.

What CAP provides

CAP provides your church with all the training and support to enable you to deliver a professional credit counseling tool that’s proven to help some of the most vulnerable in society. We do all the credit counseling centrally, allowing your Debt Center Manager to focus on supporting the clients spiritually and practically. This means your church won’t have to worry about all the financial and legal knowledge, as our highly trained caseworkers at head office will take care of all that for you.

What your church needs to do

In order to open a CAP Debt Center, you will need the following:

  • To recruit a CAP Debt Center Manager who can work a minimum of two days per week. We can provide a job profile for this role to help you find the right person.
  • Access to a computer and cell phone, and internet access.
  • Volunteers who are willing to support the Debt Center Manager and CAP clients.
  • A CAP speaker to give a talk at a Sunday service or launch event, which will include a regular giving ask.
  • Opening a new CAP Debt Center incurs a significant cost to CAP (roughly $27k per year), but we are happy to invest in local churches that want to help the poor and save the lost in their communities. However, we do ask that churches share in this cost and make a monthly contribution towards at least a third of CAP's costs - a minimum of $750 per month. We don't want finances to be a barrier to your church opening a Debt Center so keep us in the conversation and we'll see what we can do.

If your church is interested we would love to hear from you!
