Maine Family Federal Credit Union was originally named Sainte Famille Federal Credit Union and was founded on March 28, 1938. Rev. Vital E. Nonorgues was assigned to Ste. Famille Parish in Lewiston and founded the credit union to help his parishioners with their economic struggles at the time. It was the first credit union in Lewiston/Auburn and the first parish credit union in the state of Maine. Office hours were held after Sunday masses. In 1942, the credit union had 482 members.
Over the years, the credit union moved to different locations and grew. In 1957, Holy Family School partnered with the credit union’s youth program and received nationwide recognition for teaching youngsters about savings. In the early 1980s, Maine Family expanded its field of membership to a community charter encompassing one-quarter of the city of Lewiston. In 1985, the present office at 555 Sabattus Street was built to better accommodate members. In the late 1990’s, Maine Family was granted approval by the National Credit Union Administration to expand its field of membership to serve people who live, work, worship, attend school, or have immediate family members who reside within our field of membership in Androscoggin County.
In 2002, Maine Family opened the Stevens Mills School building on the corner of Minot Avenue/Hotel Road and converted a historic structure into a first-class credit union branch office. Today, Maine Family has over 22,000 members.
