In 1952, a group state employees met for the purpose of forming a financial cooperative for co-workers and their families. From these beginnings, Safe 1 Credit Union was founded. The first Safe 1 was actually a room located in the home of our first manager, with transaction receipts kept in a closet. By the end of our first month, Safe 1 had seven individuals banking with us and just over $300 in assets. A lot has changed over the years.
