Credit Union Partners to Better Serve Arizona’s Black and African-American Communities

OneAZ Credit Union remains committed to its mission to improve the lives of all Arizonans. To better support and engage with the African-American and Black community, OneAZ Credit Union has partnered with KAHARRIS & CO. LLC, a consulting firm that helps organizations integrate with communities and develop impactful relationships. Kristen Harris, the founder of KAHARRIS & CO. LLC, is leading this partnership to help OneAZ establish deeper connections with the African-American and Black community in Arizona.

This initiative is intended to build relationships with the African-American community in Arizona to deliver greater access to financial services, including wealth-building opportunities and financial education. OneAZ members play a role in keeping more dollars recirculating in our communities, which can lead to:

  • Creating more jobs
  • Investing in local small business growth
  • Helping families finance major purchases
  • Building financial security

“KAHARRIS & CO., LLC’s partnership with OneAZ reflects a shared commitment to create more inclusive strategies to stimulate and support economic viability and growth among underrepresented communities, in this case, the African-American/Black community. This is a remarkable opportunity that will expand OneAZ’s footprint in the financial marketplace, ultimately, enhancing the lives of ALL members of the communities we serve,” said Kristen Harris.

The African-American and Black community will also benefit from a closer connection with OneAZ by receiving more personalized, relationship-based banking services.

“OneAZ’s vision is to be the preferred financial institution for all Arizonans. That means building relationships and strengthening bonds with community-based partners like Kristen Harris. This partnership is about more than banking. It’s about building trust so that we can properly serve all communities across Arizona,” said Kim Reedy, President and CEO of OneAZ Credit Union.
