Parents will find a section of the site that includes information on teaching kids about the financial facts of life. Educators will have access to a video and lesson plan for teachers. The “Professionals” section of the site allows bankruptcy professionals to find an existing CARE program in their community through a user-friendly locator map, and information on starting a program in their area.
