Prosperity Connection Honored for What’s Right with the Region Award

Prosperity Connection Honored for What’s Right with the Region Award
May 17, 2017 Prosperity Connection

Prosperity Connection recently joined a long list of esteemed cohorts as an honoree in the Demonstrating Innovative Solutions category of FOCUS ST. LOUIS’s What’s Right With The Region 2017 awards.

We were nominated for creating RedDough Money Center as a nonprofit alternative to predatory lending that plagues the St. Louis region.

RedDough features accessible, safe and affordable financial products and services. The facility offers low-cost check cashing services, short-term loans, bill-pay, money orders, re-loadable debit cards, money transfers and more to those individuals who either cannot qualify for a bank account or, for personal reasons, have decided to stay out of the mainstream.

The RedDough Money Center provides people with a wide variety of options to pay less for banking services and have access to financial coaching and development services through the neighboring Excel Center® so that they may continue to work toward attaining long-term financial goals.

RedDough is part of our Wealth Accumulation Center model

Every person’s financial journey is different. St. Louis Community Credit Union (SLCCU) and its affiliate nonprofit, Prosperity Connection®, joined forces to launch a multi-use facility, known as the Wealth Accumulation Center (WAC), to provide a new way for consumers of every economic background to access affordable financial services and increase their financial knowledge. The WAC houses a small full-service SLCCU branch, a RedDough Money Center® for affordable payday loans and alternative financial services, and an Excel Center® for free financial coaching and classes. Together, these three elements create a pathway to financial stability by offering both the knowledge and tools necessary to build individual financial confidence and capability.*
