The Community Financial Partnership offers Roxbury and other neighborhoods a unique combination of education with accessible, alternative financial services, which will foster community economic development and will promote individual financial self-sufficiency by combating predatory financial operations, including check-cashers and payday lenders.

The Boston Community Development Collaborative (BCDC) has partnered with the Tremont Credit Union , a well-established, innovative and member-owned nonprofit financial institution to create the Community Financial Partnership (Partnership).  The Partnership’s combined core strengths are directed at helping to develop economic self-sufficiency for adults, youths and families in low to moderate-income communities.  BCDC’s strengths lie in its intimate knowledge of the targeted communities including operating various economic development programs to address identified needs and issues.  Tremont Credit Union’s (TCU) strengths lie in its accessible products and services including financial management expertise.  

Together, members of the Partnership will launch its first major initiative for fostering said economic development and financial self-sufficiency in targeted low to moderate-income communities, the establishment of a community credit union branch.  The first full-service community credit union branch is slated to open in Dudley Square, Roxbury in late November of this year.  Build-out construction is already underway.
Outreach to prospective members is underway.
