Our History

With $35.00, seven educators founded Ouachita Parish Teachers Federal Credit Union in 1955. It was their determination and giving spirit that brought us to where we are today!

With a name change, the addition of other employer groups and several mergers later, Ouachita Valley Federal Credit Union is now serving more than 30,000 members with a complete selection of financial services. It also stands as one of the largest and strongest credit unions in Northeast Louisiana.

How did we do it? Simple. At Ouachita Valley, we keep our members first. As a member-owned, cooperative credit union, that’s our job. Our vision is to make the biggest impact on our community’s well being and be the leading provider of the best financial solutions for our member’s lives.

Ouachita Valley’s number one priority is our members! We achieve this by delivering the highest level of member service possible!
