The Van that Takes on the Check Cashing Man
We've been selected to advance to round 2 of the Act USA Community Thrives Challenge! Now we look to our community to help us get to the next round by reaching our fundraising goal .
A community thrives when it's members thrive. Community driven banking removes barriers that prevent access to banking products and services. Bank on Wheels is on the streets in the neighborhood for everyone. We can open accounts and issue ATM cards on the spot, from the van. We offer information and membership to the City of Wilmington. We roam the city 5 days a week and by invitation from our partners.
Don't Pay to Get Paid is our way of letting everyone know that we have a solution to paying fees for services such as atm withdrawals, check cashing, prepaid cards, and payroll cards. A member can enroll in direct deposit, and then get an ATM card and use it to access cash for free. THIS is how our community will thrive; our members will keep more of their money to do what matters to them. We eliminate the barriers of transportation, fees, and credit checks and offer this membership to everyone in our field of membership.

In 2011, we obtained the charter for Stepping Stones Community Federal Credit Union. Today, we offer savings accounts, loans, direct deposit, and ATM cards with free access to money (Don't Pay to Get Paid!)
