Self-Help Federal Credit Union

About Self-Help Federal Credit Union -- California, Florida & Chicago

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 most recently in Florida, 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 24 branches*, $680 million in assets, 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.  

Self-Help Federal is part of the Self-Help family of non-profit organizations with a common mission and leadership.  Over its 36-year history, Self-Help has learned that access to responsible savings, loans, and transactions is key to financial security, family health, and improved opportunity for low-income families.  In total, the Self-Help family of non-profit organizations is more than 117,000 members strong and has delivered $7.2 billion in financing through over 121,000 loans to families, individuals and organizations across the United States.
