Tucson Federal Credit Union (TFCU) joined forces with Comin’ Home by CODAC in February. By adding Comin’ Home to the existing new account donation program, new TFCU members can select this charity to receive a $3 donation from the credit union. Comin’ Home is one of four charities available for selection at all seven TFCU branches. In 2013, TFCU donated almost $13,000 to our partners through this initiative, a 5% increase from 2012. Now in its fourth year, TFCU’s projects an even larger increase in 2014.
Comin’ Home, managed by CODAC Behavior Health Services, places homeless Veterans in transitional housing. In addition to a roof, Comin’ Home provides crucial health care, job and social skills training, assistance with credit repair and financial security, and helps participants reconnect with friends and family. The program gives Veterans a chance to regain the independence that our nation’s heroes deserve. Enlisted Veterans can find camaraderie, confidence, support, stability, and sobriety, if needed.
TFCU’s new account donations include three other core charities, Comin’ Home by CODAC, the Arizona Blind & Deaf Children’s Foundation, Inc., and Our Family Services. The branch-specific choices consist of the Community Extension Program, Inc., the Erik Hite Foundation, the Christina-Taylor Green Foundation, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, Casa de los Niños, the Green Valley-Sahuarita Community Food Bank, and the Marana Community Food Bank.
Tucson Federal Credit Union was founded in 1937 as Tucson Teachers Federal Credit Union. TFCU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, workships, volunteers, or attends school in Pima County. Today, TFCU has grown to more than 49,000 members and seven locations in Tucson, Marana, and Sahuarita. Their growth and success comes from those members who use their services, a dedicated group of volunteers who are elected by their members to represent them, and a great staff who are committed to creating an exceptional experience.
