More Info About Express Credit Union

We’ve noticed that many people are Googling Express Credit Union and ending up on our welcome post. So I asked ECU for some more information, and here is what they sent:

ECU exists to: “Provide affordable financial services to low & moderate income people in King County. In doing so, help them build assets and achieve financial stability.” In King County approximately 56,000 households live at or below poverty income levels. This population is often un-/under-banked and frequently become entangled in the difficult, costly, ongoing payday lending cycle. ECU empowers people with their own financial resources by providing accessible and affordable alternatives to break out of this cycle.

ECU partners with local community social service agencies to provided financial services and advice to their clients. Our goal is to help low income individuals and families out of the cycle of predatory lending, while also providing them with financial literacy and education.

ECU’s role is to serve as facilitators and conduits between ECU and the clients served by our partners, providing information, credit union services, and loan alternatives.

For more information, see the articles about ECU in The Seattle Times, Real Change, or The Puget Sound Business Journal.
