Like many small asset credit unions, FFCU was experiencing financial challenges.
In December 2012, for example, FFCU posted a net income of more than $15,000, but by the end of 2015, its net income fell to $3,621, according to NCUA financial performance reports.
After receiving training, the specialists were equipped to return to their communities to deliver the FFCU
assessment to other organizations in need, such as Early Head Start, Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters, Nurse Family Partnership, and Parents as Teachers sites.
As part of its investment in technology, the credit union's chief operating officer, Luis Reyes, also points to FFCU
's first stand-alone facility, a new branch office expected to open this spring on West Peterson Avenue.
