The credit union was founded in 1937 as Mid Cities Schools Credit Union by a group of Compton teachers. The first credit union manager, Dr. Roy Strain, was an instructor at Compton Community College and ran the credit union out of his home without compensation for many years.
That was more than 75 years ago and today, we are over $20 million in assets and serve more than 3,000 members from a spacious location in the heart of Compton, California. We are proud to be a credit union, which means we are a not-for-profit cooperative. As a result, our members receive higher earning on their deposits and have access to competitive loan rates.

Give WOW service to every credit union member, employee, partners and vendors. Proactively identify and solve problems, communicate expectations clearly and frequently, and deliver more than expected.
Humble and Respectful – While we celebrate our individual successes, we are not arrogant nor do we treat others differently from how we would want to be treated. We carry ourselves with a quiet confidence because we believe in the long run, our character speaks for itself.
Integrity and Ownership – We are ethically unyielding and inspire trust by saying what we mean and doing what we say. We do the right thing when no one is looking and we accept responsibility for our actions.
Be a Team and a Family – Watch out for each other, care for each other, and go above and beyond for each other because we believe and trust each other. Create an environment that is friendly, warm and exciting. Encourage diversity in points of view. Be a leader and a follower. Strive to eliminate any kind of cynicism and negative interaction to create a harmonious working environment.
Passionate and Loyal to What We Do – We are inspired because we believe in what we are doing. Passion is contagious. We have a positive and optimistic attitude about everything we do that inspires others. We don’t take “no” or “that won’t work” for an answer. Everyone makes an impact on a larger dream and vision to expand and help more people.
