Community First is coming to Jefferson!

Posted 3 weeks ago

News photo

We are excited to announce that Community First Credit Union will be opening a new branch in Jefferson, Ohio, in the early part of 2021 to serve your borrowing, saving, and banking needs.

In this Digital Age, many organizations are relying upon electronic tools and services to meet consumer demands, but losing that personal touch in the process. Branches are closing or in person service has slowed down.

At Community First, we believe in providing consumers with all the latest electronic tools for convenience AND still be available to you for in-person service and a personal touch. Therefore, we will be expanding our physical presence into Jefferson to provide easier access to county residents in middle and south county.

Community First Credit Union has the tools, the time, and the personal touch that you deserve to meet your banking needs.

More details of our future opening will be coming soon.
