About Self-Help Federal

Self-Help Federal Credit Union was chartered in 2008 to build a network of branches that serve working families and under-served communities. With 18 branches in California, 10 branches in Illinois, and 1 branch in Wisconsin, over $1.2 Billion in assets, and serving more than 82,000 members, Self-Help Federal is one of the fastest-growing low-income designated credit unions in the country. It is part of the national Self-Help family of non-profit organizations whose collective mission is to create and protect ownership and economic opportunity for all. For 40 years, the Center for Community Self-Help and its affiliates have provided $8.7 billion in financing to help over 166,000 low-wealth borrowers buy homes, start and build businesses, and strengthen community resources.
