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, Florida, and Illinois, 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 23 branches, over $618 million in assets, and serves over 80,000 people.

With our breadth of experience, Self-Help Federal staff is a solid resource on a range of stories. Here is a partial list of areas where we have financing and policy expertise:

We are glad to work with the media to share our experience and to help find additional sources as necessary.
