In the Community

Directions Is Dedicated to Community Involvement

 
At Directions Credit Union, we are not only dedicated to improving the lives of our members, but of all those that live in our communities. Credit Unions were founded on the basic principal of “people helping people”, and each day we strive to continue that mission.

Last year, we held 365 hours of educational events, reaching over 8,500 participants at libraries, schools, churches, senior centers, and correctional institutions in our communities.
 
We provide a full array of financial topics from budgeting, identity theft, understanding credit and much more.  If you are interested in more information about scheduling a financial literacy workshop contact.
