Why Invest in OCU?
Opportunities come in all shapes and sizes and we strive to create those moments for the under-served. However, we also give those more fortunate, the opportunity to give and help those with less. We have several designations that allow us to access programs and resources that address gaps and needs in our community.
Our mission is to create wealth among low income and other under-served people, including woman, minorities, immigrants, and people of color. We promote grassroots community development by giving people a way to save and obtain affordable credit and financial services, offering a path to homeownership and through small business lending and job creation.
