Juntos Avanzamos: Together We Advance

Member credit unions who receive the Juntos Avanzamos designation are recognized for serving and educating the Latino community on its journey to financial independence. This program was developed by Cornerstone Credit Union League in Texas and is expanding nationally to meet this demand. 

Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union is the first credit union in Seattle and the second credit union in the state of Washington to be accepted into this program.

As a member of the “Together We Advance” family of credit unions, SMCU has demonstrated that we:

  • Have a formal strategic plan for improving service to Latinos
  • Offer bilingual services and information
  • Collaborate with organizations that support the Latino community
  • Provide affordable products and services that meet the needs of Latinos
  • Offer financial education tailored to the Latino community 

We're Proud to be Recognized.

 Happy family

Immigrants are a large and vibrant part of the US economy, yet they remain largely underserved by banks and are vulnerable to predatory financial services. SMCU is changing that. We recognize and treasure this community’s innumerable contributions to our city and our state. The Juntos Avanzamos designation is external validation of our credit union’s values and efforts to help the Latino community prosper. We’ve always celebrated our role in giving back and are proud to serve as a vital financial resource for this community.

We Care About the Future of Our Community.

SMCU is here to change lives and make a social impact. To do this, we need to leverage the strengths found in our differences, histories, and cultures. We know that inclusion leads to prosperity for all. And while prosperity is a different dream for each one of us, SMCU is committed to bringing it to life for all communities.
