Affordable Financing for Immigration Services
Ascentra Credit Union has partnered with area providers of low-cost immigration services to offer affordable financing for services such as:
- Adjustment of status

The Newcomers Initiative is a program that allows individuals to finance these costs and establishing or improve their credit score while introducing many to mainstream financial services provided by a trusted financial institution.
