Website Christians Against Poverty New Zealand

About CAP

CAP is a not-for-profit organisation working across Aotearoa to bring hope and help to families and whānau who are trapped in debt and poverty.

Every month, CAP receives hundreds of phone calls from New Zealanders who are drowning in unmanageable debt. It consumes more than they have to give; families are forced to sacrifice living essentials to pay their creditors. Our free, professional Debt Help service enables clients to repay their debt using their own income, and work towards a better future. As with all of CAP’s services, Debt Help is delivered in partnership with local churches, allowing clients to receive holistic care as they journey towards the ‘debt free’ finish line.
