The CARE Committee is a volunteer organization comprised of bankruptcy lawyers, judges, and court staff who offer classroom and/or town hall style presentations geared towards middle school through college-aged students on the responsible use of credit and the pitfalls of falling into debt. They offer a component on student loans and have volunteers who are willing to travel statewide to help educate Maine students on financial literacy. Their services are free of charge.
