About Self-Help Federal

Self-Help Federal Credit Union was chartered in 2008 to build a network of branches that partner with working families and communities that have historically faced systemic barriers to financial inclusion. With over $2 billion in assets and serving more than 93,000 members in 38 branches - 22 in California, nine in Illinois, five in Washington, and two in Wisconsin, Self-Help Federal is one of the fastest-growing community development-designated financial institutions in the country. It is part of the Self-Help family of nonprofit organizations whose collective mission is to create and protect ownership and economic opportunity for all. For more than 43 years, the national Center for Community Self-Help and its affiliates have provided over $10.9 billion in financing to help thousands of borrowers buy homes, start businesses, and strengthen community resources.
