Second Federal, located in Chicago’s Little Village, began providing banking services to immigrants in 1882. When the local population shifted from European to Latino, many banks left. But Second Federal stayed and helped its new customers thrive—until the housing crisis threatened massive foreclosures. This is the story of the resilience of this community and the remarkable trust that is Second Federal's legacy.
