Credit unions are cooperative financial institutions, owned and controlled by the people who use and benefit from the products and services. This makes them unique in the financial services industry.
The philosophy of all credit unions is "people helping people." Each member is an equal owner, regardless of how much money he or she has invested with the credit union.
As owners, or “members”, we help each other meet each others financial goals by providing a safe, convenient place for members to save money, get loans at reasonable rates, and receive honest, factual information to help them make better life decisions.
