Self-Help Federal Credit Union


About Self-Help Federal Credit Union—California, Greater Chicago & Milwaukee

Self-Help Federal Credit Union was chartered in 2008 to build a network of credit union branches to operate on a scale uncommon in the community development industry. Through a series of mergers, acquisitions and new branch launches in California, Illinois and Milwaukee, we are building a community development credit union that aims to provide high-impact financial services to working-class communities.

Self-Help Federal now has 27 branches and serves over 80,000 people. We are committed to delivering safe and affordable savings, transparently-priced accounts and a full suite of loans—small dollar, citizenship, unsecured consumer, auto and mortgage—often to borrowers who could not access responsible services elsewhere.
