Financial freedom for everyone

We are always mindful of our mission of building wealth and creating economic opportunity for underserved people and communities.

At Alternatives, we are thoughtful in the shaping of the financial products, services, and community programs that we offer. We consider the demographics and needs of the counties we serve, the local community, surrounding towns and the broader need to address gaps in the living wage and provide access to economic opportunity and financial freedom. 

Alternatives has a unique history as one of the few financial institutions in the area established by local community members to serve the local community. We are committed to being the most community-oriented financial institution in the region. In fulfilling that goal, we strive to attract talented board members, employees, interns, and volunteers who bring diverse attributes and experience to drive our collective commitment to reach underserved populations.
