The Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) Program is a court outreach program that provides students and young adults with knowledge and the skills they need to make smart financial decisions.
For the past ten years, Bankruptcy Court Judge Margaret Mann has lead the Court's CARE Program. She now is on the advisory board for the National CARE Program. The Court's current chair is Bankruptcy Attorney Kathleen Cashman-Kramer. Modeled after the successful CARE Program created by Judge John Ninfo (U.S. Bankruptcy Court - Western District of New York), the presentation program is aimed primarily to high school seniors, college students, and others.
“The volunteers with our CARE Program in San Diego provide practical tips
to help people avoid costly financial mistakes and build security for a happy life.”
— Judge Margaret Mann
Judges, attorneys, and other professionals in the judicial system are available to deliver informative CARE Program presentations to your students right in your classroom. Presentations can be delivered to large or small groups and can be tailored to fit your schedule. We also can focus on a financial topic that is most interesting to your students.
If you are an administrator or teacher and are interested in scheduling a CARE Program presentation at your high school, college, or other organization, contact Michele McConnell, Judge Mann's judicial assistant and CARE Program coordinator, for more information.
