The Center for Consumer Recovery is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, focused on helping everyday Americans recover from financial distress/hardship.
Our Social Mission
CCR is committed to helping people resolve delinquent debt problems, reduce their financial
stress, and improve family stability. Stable families will foster better health outcomes and
educational achievement for children. We work to strengthen communities.
How We Work
We primarily accept donations of patient delinquent debts from hospitals and other healthcare
organizations. The individuals who owe these medical debts become the focus of all the services
we provide to help families.
We help each consumer in ways that work to stabilize the family.

We are a “passive debt owner” and do not make any direct contact with consumers. All outreach
to consumers for the above servicing are made by our specialist contractor personnel.
As CCR helps consumers to get back on their feet, financially, some consumers volunteer to pay
a modest and affordable amount toward their delinquent hospital debt. These payments are used
to fund the CCR costs of helping all consumers and to make investments into the local
communities where the consumers live and work.
CCR invites and appreciates the donations from charitable foundations and from the general
public as we build our unique model of advocacy for family and community stability. We accept
donations of cash, consumer debt portfolios and other assets from individuals, financial
institutions, hospitals and general creditors.
All Services are Free
All of our services are available FREE of charge to the consumer, hospital or other creditor. No
fees or charges of any kind, ever. CCR is a self-funding 501(c)(3) non-profit.
CCR creates direct and indirect value to hospitals. CCR delivers concrete benefits for a hospital or healthcare system participating in the charged-off debt donation program.
