Coastal Community Federal Credit Union began in 1957 when employees of the Galveston Fire Department decided to form Galveston Firemen's Federal Credit Union. In 1973, the name was changed to City of Galveston Federal Credit Union to allow all city employees of Galveston to join. Then in 1991, the credit union purchased the bank building located at 2302 Church Street which enabled us to offer more services to our growing family help us keep growing.?On August 28, 2000, the credit union changed its charter to serve people who live, work, worship and attend school in Galveston County. To identify with the member our name was changed to COASTAL COMMUNITY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION. What began as a $5 investment for 13 Firemen in 1957, has grown to a thriving, full-service financial institution with assets of over $70 million and membership of over 10,000 members today. 

Our mission today is the same as our founding Firemen: "We are proud to uphold the "people helping people" motto while providing affordable financial services."
