At the heart of it all

It all started in 1935 with a meeting of neighbors who decided to put their trust in one another instead of a bank. Since then, our credit union has grown to nearly 115,000 members—who all share a commitment to putting community first and providing each member with personal care and service.

The seed was planted and quickly grew

Redford Township Credit Union was founded in 1935 at the home of Arthur and May Jenkins, and it wasn’t long before others joined.
