Declaration of Beliefs
People of Portland
The world is changing, but what we stand for will not. We will continue to educate, provide access, and be a Point of Opportunity for every member of our community. If moving forward as an individual feels impossible, the community is here to help us all take the first step. We stand with our members — all of our members.
As a financial institution, our values are what define us and guide our actions. We know in a capitalist society, you vote with your dollars, and we thank you for standing with us in creating a legacy of support and inclusion.
We believe in an inclusive community. We believe in our people. We believe in you.
Building a Strong Community
Citizens of Point West
We always have been and always will be a safe space for anyone who needs it. Walking in our doors makes you a Citizen of Point West.
People Helping People
We treat all people with respect and dignity and offer honest service, without prejudice. This has always been our standard and nothing will change that.
Banking Without Borders
Where you were born should not determine how you live. We offer lending and services to immigrants and all members of the Hispanic community, and we have been awarded the prestigious Juntos Avanzamos designation.
Minority is the Majority
Our community is richer for its diversity of people and voices. We find unity in our differences.
Financial empowerment is at the core of happy and healthy lives. Our passion and our DNA is to help individuals and local businesses get on their feet and take control of their destinies.
Accountable to the Underserved
Financial equity is not for a select few. We welcome all people, especially those who have been turned down elsewhere.
