About us

Our credit union began out of a need to help. Back in 1961, a group of salaried employees from Great Lakes Steel felt the urgency to help their fellow workers improve their financial condition.  The 697 members who joined together in 1961 saved $112,000 in their savings accounts. Those savings, along with the money the credit union borrowed, made it possible that year to fund 525 loans totaling $268,000.

Through the years, we recognized that the need is much greater. It’s not confined to a specific group of employees but extends to the community around us. Today, we are creating brighter financial futures for individuals living all around Downriver. We are local and neighborly, but we strive to make a big impact.
