Alternatives Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce its first Credit Path Seminar for Community Development practitioners.

The Credit Path ( was originally developed as a way of understanding our members’ financial situations, to enable Alternatives to incorporate the needs of our low income members into our business planning. The Path describes where people are situated at various points along a continuum between poverty and self-sufficiency. Our mission, as a community development financial institution, is to help our members move along that continuum by empowering them to make decisions, and
offering opportunities, that will move them towards financial self-sufficiency.

We have created a two day event to share our work with our peers. The agenda includes an overview of Alternatives’ strategic approach, organizational structure, and program development. Break out sessions will allow participants to study programs that most interest them. The seminar concludes with a tour of the community that will give participants the chance to meet Alternatives’ members and see how our work translates into action.
