My husband and I opened accounts with Alternatives just after our wedding, and the workers there made the process so easy for us. I had changed my last name and they talked me through the process to open the new accounts, which was much easier than expected. We also met with a representative to discuss buying a house in the future, and they were very patient with us (as beginners in the home-buying process). I do wish there were more ATMs around town, as it's not always easy to get to the main branch. I also like that Alternatives seeks to provide service to the community through its programming (the Money Wise program, free tax preparation, etc). Overall, I'm happy we found a credit union that cares about its members and the community.
