Self-Help Federal Credit Union

Self-Help Federal Credit Union

Self-Help FCU has branches in CA, IL and WI. We work to provide responsible financial products and services to our members in service to our mission of Ownership & Economic Opportunity for All. While we serve all, we focus on serving those who may be underserved by conventional lenders, including people of color, women, rural residents and low-wealth families and communities. Our sister credit union, Self-Help Credit Union, serves members in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Florida.
