Fresno – Self-Help Federal Credit Union and Fresno EOC are hosting the Grand Opening of Self-Help’s Fresno branch this Thursday November 19 at 5:00 pm. The two groups have come together to provide Fresno residents a full service credit union focused on serving low-income and otherwise underserved residents.
