Our History

Community Resource Credit Union CRCU has a long history of people helping people with low-cost, high-value financial services

CRCU History

Way back in 1935, a group of employees in the Humble Oil Company envisioned creating a financial institution dedicated to the mission of people helping people with low-cost, high-value financial services. And just like that, Community Resource Credit Union was born, originally founded as the Humble Employees Baytown Federal Credit Union. Using a small space in the office building of the Humble Oil Company, credit union volunteers served the company’s employees, annuitants, and families.
Since that time, our credit union has gone through periods of significant growth and expanded our charter, which defines who we serve – and through a series of name changes until we became Community Resource Credit Union in 2003.
In spite of our humble roots, CRCU has grown into one of the greater Houston area’s most thriving credit unions, with nearly 56,000 members and assets of more than $840 million. Our success and growth have enabled us to offer our members a comprehensive range of financial products, services and technological innovations while remaining passionately committed to exceptional member service and community outreach.
