Banks & Credit Unions
Self-Help Credit Union was chartered in 1983 to build a network of branches that partner with working families and communities often underserved by the financial marketplace. Our mission is creating and protecting ownership and economic opportunity for all, especially people of color, women, rural residents and low-wealth families and communities. With over $1.64 billion in assets and serving more than 91,000 members in 37 branches – eight in Florida, 22 in North Carolina, six in South Carolina, and one in Virginia - Self-Help Credit Union is one of the fastest-growing community development 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 over 40 years, the national Center for Community Self-Help and its affiliates have provided more than $10.5 billion in financing to help more than 150,000 borrowers buy homes, start and grow businesses and strengthen community resources.
