Community Recovery Initiative


We're All In This Together. Invest in Self-Help's Community Recovery Initiative.

People across the United States are struggling right now. Unfortunately, the effects of COVID-19 won’t be short-term and will have the most severe impact on the communities we've been serving for the past 40 years. We're well positioned to support them during these uncertain times—but we need your deposits to do it.

Consider joining our Community Recovery Initiative by opening a Community Recovery Term Certificate or any other Self-Help account.
