ST. LOUIS (June 7, 2024) – Alltru Credit Union, a leading Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) in the Greater St. Louis area, is proud to break ground in Florissant, MO for their fifth branch location.

As part of a larger growth strategy, Alltru Credit Union aims to more conveniently serve current members in North County, St. Louis as well as reach new markets in the surrounding area. As one of only 500 CDFI credit unions in the United States, Alltru’s primary mission is to provide accessible personal banking and lending products to underserved individuals, regardless of their credit histories.

“Over 55 years ago, District 837 Credit Union, now known as Alltru, was created in a union hall in North County St. Louis from the idea we can accomplish great things by working together and trusting each other” said Tracy Verner, Community Development Manager at Alltru Credit Union. She went on to say, “As a not-for-profit cooperative, we want our members to not just know the difference but feel the difference as they work with us. Our structure lets our members experience great service every time they interact with us because they know that we care. We want them to be successful, and we want them to accomplish great things too.”

At the groundbreaking, President of the Greater North County Chamber of Commerce Jaime Jenkins, La Macchia Group employees, and other distinguished guests were in attendance. During the ceremony, CEO Michelle Rosner and Gina Hakenewerth, Chairwoman of Alltru Credit Union’s Board of Directors, remarked on their excitement for Alltru Credit Union’s new branch.
