First Step Program

  • Laura Campbell President + CEO at Farmers Insurance Group Federal Credit Union
  • Chad Graves CEO at Ent Federal Credit Union
  • Kevin Johns Vice President, Sales & Services at Class Act Federal Credit Union
  • Kim Vu Vice President, Environment Social Governance at Remitly
  • Blake Griffin Technical Trainer at Camber Corporation

The First Step Program targets people who are underserved by traditional financial institutions (and often gravitate toward check cashers and payday lenders) and assists them in reaching their dreams of getting “one step closer towards financial freedom.”

The key to this program is for credit unions to partner with local community-based organizations who have earned the trust and respect of these consumers by serving them when others would not.

First Step proposes a win-win-win solution for credit unions, community-based organizations, and consumers.
