Who We Are
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.
After eight successful years building new members in the Ridgecrest community, we finished construction of our new corporate headquarters in the Ridgecrest Business Park. This is where we stand today. 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.
