About the Company
From its inception, Christian Credit Counseling Service has focused on the needs of its clients.
As the pastor of Open Door Christian Church in Novato, California, Harold L. Hendricks realized that finances were a key problem for members of his congregation. Pastor Hendricks was always very successful with Budget Counseling, but he continually came up against a brick wall in regards to Debt Recovery because there was no credit counseling business that would handle the process as a spiritual matter or allow tithing as a part of the answer.
As a result, Harold founded Christian Credit Counseling Service in 1991. In 1992, it became a division of the non-profit, religious corporation Christian Asset Resource Educational Services (CARES). The second division of CARES – CARES Recovery – was established in 1994.
