Neighborhood Centers Inc. is proud to sponsor the Promise Credit Union to serve low-income families in the Gulfton/Sharpstown area.
The new credit union is the first to be chartered by the State of Texas since 2004, and is designed to help families who do not have a relationship with a traditional financial institution establish credit, grow a business, save for a home and become financially independent.
More than 55 percent of the households in the Gulfton/Sharpstown area are unbanked and typically use check-cashing services, pawn shops and payday lenders. The credit union builds on the trust the residents in the area already have with Neighborhood Centers and helps hard-working individuals strengthen their assets and enter the financial mainstream.
Membership in the Promise Credit Union is open to all residents who live, work, worship or attend school in the zip codes of 77003, 77011, 77020, 77023, 77033, 77034, 77036, 77061, 77074, 77081, 77087, 77502, 77504 or 77587. Members have access to free checking accounts, savings accounts, extended hours, bilingual employees, and innovative services, including citizenship and legal residency application loans and employment-based personal loans.
