Business Yellow Pages
Welcome to Alternatives Business Yellow Pages, where you'll find goods and services offered by Alternatives Credit Union members and Business CENTS graduates. By buying from your friends and neighbors in the Alternatives community, we are supporting each other.*
The choice of where we do our business is one of our most significant political and economic tools. The Alternatives Credit Union lets us, its members, determine the social consequences of the uses of our money.
Your gift to Alternatives Impact helps our community!
The Credit Path
As Alternatives Credit Union has grown and changed, our use of the Credit Path model of financial empowerment has changed as well. Originally developed by Bill Myers as a way of understanding our members' financial situations and incorporating that into our business planning, the Credit Path describes where people are situated at various points along a continuum between poverty and self-sufficiency. Our job, as a community development financial institution, is to help our members move along that continuum by empowering them to make decisions, and offering opportunities, that will move them towards financial self-sufficiency.
