About Us

Bayou Community Federal Credit Union began serving its members in 1957.

Bayou Community Federal Credit Union is here to provide you with the credit union difference. When you join our credit union, you become a member-owner of a not-for-profit financial institution whose primary mission is serving you, the member.

Your deposits are federally insured to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund which is administrated by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).


The purpose and strategic plan of the Bayou Community FCU is to serve its members by providing competitive financial services in keeping with recognized good business practices.

Our Mission Statement Embraces the Following:

The mission of this credit union is to earn desired income while delivering high quality member products and services that meet the financial needs of our members. Our mission has three components:

Member Service: Our credit union's most important component is its members. Our products are designed, our hours are set and our employees are hired to meet the needs of our members.

Employees: The next most important component of our credit union is its employees. Without dedicated, motivated and responsible employees, it would be impossible to render high quality member service. This credit union will continue to be dedicated to the well being of its employees.

Value: The credit union is in business to provide value for our members. This means that we must operate our organization as efficiently as possible. Efficient operations and quality products and services are the two major cornerstones upon which we provide value to meet the expectations of our members.

50+ Years and still serving, our members, our family and our friends.
