Great Lakes CU Announces HUD Approved Counseling for Home Buyers

Bannockburn (IL) – Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) is pleased to announce two new additions to the Housing Counseling team. Stephanie Ban and Violet Flemenbaum recently joined GLCU as Housing Counselors on December 16th, 2019. As certified Housing and Urban Development (HUD) counselors, they help qualify clients for down payment assistance through the HUD first-time homebuyers’ certification program.

Through a recent merger with North Side Community Federal Credit Union, GLCU is now one of only 16 credit unions across the country to offer HUD-approved housing counseling. With this expansion, GLCU's HUD counseling is now available to anyone in the Greater Chicagoland region through the Uptown, Crystal Lake, and North Chicago branch locations.

Sarah Marshall, Chief Community Development Officer of Great Lakes Credit Union stated, “Great Lakes Credit Union is excited to add counselors to the North Chicago and Crystal Lake branches. This new service allows us to better serve our members and local community through personalized, high-quality financial education that supports our mission of helping individuals achieve their financial goals.”
