One of our favorite phrases here at First Peoples is: Here for you. Here for good.
We like it because it really represents the core mission of our organization, and what the credit union movement is all about. We are a member owned cooperative founded on the principle of helping our neighbors. We’re not here for a profit, we’re here for people. We’re quite literally here for you and here to do good in our community.
Unfortunately there are times when our members come upon some bad luck. Though we cannot take away the uncertainty and worry they feel in those hard times, we do want to take a moment to remind you that we’re here to help in any way possible. Just like always, our staff is ready and willing to talk with you to see what accommodations we are able to make. Every situation is different, but we can pledge to you that we’re here to offer support.
