Mission in Action with the International Rescue Committee

Recently, Seattle Credit Union made a significant impact on the future of Afghan refugees in our region. In close collaboration with Seattle's International Rescue Committee (IRC), we earned the trust of 35 new members of this community as their chosen financial institution.

Our conversations with the IRC started after a series of denials from financial institutions who regarded the situation of the refugees as “too complicated." We stepped in with solutions, genuinely caring for the situation of the families, and with nimbleness needed to navigate the onboarding process.

The Seattle Credit Union team was touched by the tremendous sacrifices our new members made to leave Afghanistan to join us in Seattle. We look forward to learning how we can serve the unique needs of this community and continue to grow trust between those we hope to serve.
