“Judge John Ninfo’s C.A.R.E. Program hits the nail on the head! Instead of waiting until the financial damage has been done – he attacks the cause of credit card abuse. He focuses on today’s young people and through the use of testimonials and a college student produced film, he effectively delivers his message of avoiding unnecessary (Needs v. Wants) credit card debt and its damaging consequences,” John J. Hargrove, Chief Judge, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of California says in a testimonial on the C.A.R.E. Program web site. Judge John Ninfo II is the founder of the C.A.R.E. Program.

The Program’s web site at offers information on

  • Scheduling a C.A.R.E. presentation in your area
  • Starting a C.A.R.E Program
  • Free presentation materials

“It’s reaching high school students – a group that would be difficult to reach in another way – with a really strong message about credit card usage before they get into trouble,” Carole Bozworth, Ph.D. the University of Missouri’s Extension Service Regional Specialist for Consumer and Family Economics told the Daily Record of Kansas City and Independence, Missouri after the C.A.R.E. program was introduced in the region.
