Who We Are

Branch Photo

Desert Valleys Federal Credit Union opened on July 11, 1946 with a small branch in the desert community of Trona, CA to provide the plant workers of American Potash Chemical Company a place to cash their payroll checks. After over 50 years of service to the Trona community, in May 1999, we expanded our field of membership to include the neighboring communities of Ridgecrest, California City, Boron, Lone Pine, Bishop, and Lake Isabella. Additionally, we opened our second branch location in Ridgecrest in 1999 on Balsam Street. This allowed us to serve many of our current members and open our doors to many new ones.

In 2007, we built our main branch location in the Ridgecrest Business Park. Our facility supports community groups, events, and of course serving our members. Over the past five years, the credit union has grown significantly offering new and innovative products and solutions like our hybrid loan program Driving Sense and prize-based savings program Save to Win. We strive to continue to be your local credit union here to serve you in your hometown. Desert Valleys is committed to provide competitively priced products and monetary resources to our members, with an emphasis on our personal member service. We are dedicated to the idea of providing you the tools for financial success and helping to improve the economic and social conditions of our communities.
