CASE is also a Community Development Credit Union (CDCU). A CDCU is a credit
union with a mission of serving low and moderate-income people and communities. A CDCU specializes in fairly priced loans, a safe place to save and build assets, a place to conduct transactions at a reasonable cost, financial education and counseling for its members, and products and services that can help members free themselves from high-cost and predatory debt. Our goal is to help our members gain control over their personal finances and achieve economic well being. As a CDCU, CASE has created products specifically for those of modest means to help our members to become financially stable and to avoid predatory lenders. These services include one-on-one financial counseling
with a certified counselor; Save to Win, a special term deposit account that helps build savings while giving the member the chance to win cash prizes; CASE Cash, an alternative to a payday loan; Credit Builder VISA to improve your credit score; Borrow and Save loan with a savings component.
The two-woman team that oversees evolving community development products and
services initiatives are Karen Casler and Norma McGarry. “Trust is huge in working with
communities that traditionally have not trusted other financial institutions,” Karen notes. “We deal with individuals who, for example, never had the family discussion about managing finances.”
“Our members own CASE Credit Union, and it’s our duty to serve our members and help them become and stay financially secure.” Our community outreach matches our mission – to assist members and employees in achieving financial success.
