Inclusiv announces the largest expansion of the Juntos Avanzamos credit union network since the program went national three years ago. Since January of this year, 11 credit unions have received the prestigious Juntos Avanzamos designation. This new group of Juntos Avanzamos credit unions brings affordable, relevant, bi-cultural and bilingual services to over 418,000 consumers in six states, and expands the Juntos Avanzamos presence to the state of Idaho.
Juntos Avanzamos designated credit unions now operate in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, providing services to almost 6 million consumers through a network of over 700 branches.
Inclusiv and its Juntos Avanzamos League partners, the Cornerstone Credit Union League, the California and Nevada Credit Union League, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates, the New York Credit Union Association and the Northwest Credit Union Association, welcome Alive Credit Union, Cy-Fair Credit Union, Guardians Credit Union, Icon Credit Union, MPS Credit Union, Pasadena Service Federal Credit Union, Premier America Credit Union, Rocket Federal Credit Union, Southern Chautauqua Federal Credit Union, Tucoemas Federal Credit Union and TTCU Federal Credit Union to our growing network of institutions committed to meeting the needs of Hispanic and immigrant consumers and their adoption of the Juntos Avanzamos framework of financial inclusion.
“The California Credit Union League is thrilled to have three additional California credit unions join the Juntos Avanzamos Network,” said Larry Palochik, Senior Vice President Member Solutions, California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues. “We are extremely proud of the important outreach and services these credit unions are providing to the underserved in the areas they serve, particularly the immigrant and Hispanic communities. By obtaining the Juntos Avanzamos designation, these credit unions clearly demonstrate the credit union motto of ‘People Helping People’ and we congratulate all three on their efforts.”
The growth of Juntos Avanzamos underlines the increased awareness within our movement about the importance of financial inclusion and the key role Hispanics and immigrants play in the nation’s economy. With the addition of these credit unions, the Juntos Avanzamos network has substantially expanded its reach and capacity to impact the Hispanic and immigrant communities in the United States.
Since the beginning of the year, four credit unions joined their communities in celebrating their Juntos Avanzamos designations by hosting Proclamation Ceremonies. The Juntos Avanzamos Proclamation is a public ceremony intended to convey the message that the credit union is “open for business” and ready to serve and meet the needs of the Hispanic and Immigrant communities. Downey Federal Credit Union in California, Hope Federal Credit Union branches in Tennessee and Arkansas, and Guardians Credit Union in Florida celebrated their respective Proclamations during the first half of 2019. Greylock Federal Credit Union in Pittsfield, Massachussets celebrated their designation this week, with the participation of over 300 members of the community, staff, public officials, and representatives from Inclusiv and the Cooperative Credit Union Association.
