CAP Australia is a Christian charity that believes no Australian should live in financial distress, and so is equipping a movement of churches to walk alongside those in financial distress while confidently proclaiming Jesus. CAP provides the church with practical tools, services and skills, so they can tangibly enable financial wellbeing for their community, regardless of their situation, providing all services free of charge.
