On Oct. 2, Alive Credit Union was the first credit union in Northeast Florida to receive the Juntos Avanzamos (Together We Advance) designation. Community partners and leaders came together to celebrate in the Juntos Avanzamos Flag Raising Ceremony.
In order to receive this designation, a credit union must complete an extensive application process and demonstrate what initiatives have been implemented to serve the needs of the Hispanic market.
Alive Credit Union has been dedicated to providing low-cost financial solutions to its members for over 65 years,and over the past few years the Alive team has been focused on developing more tools and resources for the Jacksonville Hispanic and immigrant communities. Some of these include staffing bilingual employees, providing education to certify in-house financial counselors, having a diverse group of volunteers and staff, implementing programs that allow the use of ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) and alternative forms of ID to allow qualification of membership and more.
