WE CARE Relief ProgramWFCU is always here to help our members, especially in times of hardship, emergency, and disaster.
The WE CARE Relief Program includes options to assist our members and the community we serve with emergency assistance during times of individual or economic hardship, national distress and any other emergency that may present itself. Since the life is unexpected and sometimes causing disruptions to regular financial situations, Wakota FCU offers resources, relief services, and emergency loans.
As each individual’s situation is different the credit union staff is prepared to tailor the program to fit your needs and help you get through hardships you may be experiencing. Please note that not every member may be eligible for each offered support service.
