Seattle Credit Union to Open Financial Hub at the Salishan Family Investment Center
SCU partners with the Tacoma Housing Authority and the Salishan Association for upcoming expansion to Pierce County
TACOMA, WA – April 13, 2022 — Seattle Credit Union is excited to announce an expansion into Tacoma in the summer of 2022.
The credit union’s mission is to provide financial support and opportunities for communities that are underserved and have been systemically discriminated against. Recognizing a need for financial services outside of King and Snohomish counties, Seattle Credit Union is expanding south to serve the Salishan community of Tacoma.
Seattle Credit Union will occupy a space at the Salishan Family Investment Center, located at 1720 E 44th St, Tacoma, WA, 98404, in a community center that serves East Tacoma. The Salishan Association and Tacoma Housing Authority, owners of this building, welcome Seattle Credit Union as a financial partner to meet the needs of residents in the area.
We are excited to welcome Seattle Credit Union to the Salishan neighborhood. We believe they will be a great partner to the Tacoma Housing Authority and the Salishan Association by providing services that meet the needs of our community.Frankie Johnson, Salishan Association Board President
Seattle Credit Union’s physical presence in the building will include a hub (similar to a branch office) with regular banking hours and a 24-hour ATM. This location will be staffed by employees who can open accounts, answer questions, and provide financial counseling to community members. Seattle Credit Union hopes to staff this location with local members of the community, and will have a regular presence in the neighborhood, supporting local organizations, events, and more.
It is so important for us to enter this community with caution knowing the history and harm that has taken place. We are eager to cultivate this partnership and ensure we are the financial institution of choice helping the residents in Salishan grow and prosper for generations to come. This is one huge step in the right direction, and it makes me super proud.Jenefeness Tucker, Seattle Credit Union Vice President of Community Relations and Public Affairs
Serving Washington state since 1933, Seattle Credit Union welcomes the opportunity to be Tacoma’s partner in growth in prosperity, starting in Salishan. Additional details about an opening date for the branch will be announced in the coming weeks. Explore current opportunities for employment and banking solutions at seattlecu.com.
