(Christians Against Poverty)
CAP (Christians Against Poverty) is all about empowering the local church to relieve the poverty they see in their neighbourhoods. The need is all around us. Debt is one of the biggest causes of poverty in the western world. It causes stress and fear, hunger (76% of clients miss meals), family breakdown and even suicide (37% of clients considered suicide).
CAP works through a network of church-based centres to get alongside the poor and broken to offer hope, friendship and a real way out of poverty. Our Debt Centres offer professional debt counselling to those who could not otherwise afford the service. We provide much-needed financial education through the CAP Money Course, and CAP Job Clubs help people who are struggling with unemployment find work.
Free debt counselling in your community from a national charity. Call toll free at 1-855-214-9191 or go to www.capcanada.org for more information.
CAP Money Course offers a free course to help you manage your money better and learn to budget, save and spend well. This is open to everyone and runs for three Tuesdays from 6:30-8pm starting November 6. Please register at email@example.com.
