Vote for Homeword daily through June 20!

Missoula Federal Credit Union is giving back through its annual Giving Together contest, which we are thrilled to be a part of. Now through June 20, MFCU members can vote once a day to help us win $25,000. With that we can serve over 300 people through homebuyer education and one-on-one counseling as they determine whether purchase a home. The prize money could also help build a safe playground for children who live at one of our beautiful, affordable rental properties. 

If you're an MFCU member, please vote each day and encourage others to join you.

Your vote for Homeword will help people like Jessa and her family have stable finances and safe places to call home.
