Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union

The Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union was established in 1976 by the founders of the Polish & Slavic Center led by Rev. Longin Tolczyk. The founders wanted to help immigrants who, upon arrival in New York City, wanted to buy houses in Greenpoint but were turned down by the banks. Banks were unwilling to extend credit for purchases or renovations of real estate properties to people who did not yet have an established credit history, especially since these properties were located in an area that was run-down at the time.

In addition to our branches, our Credit Union also has a modern Operations Center located in Fairfield, NJ, allowing us to serve over 108 thousand members. With over 2,5 billion dollars in assets, PSFCU is currently the largest ethnic credit union in the United States.

NYC Department for the Aging

New York City is home to approximately 1.64 million older adults, and the Department for the Aging (DFTA) is committed to helping them age in their homes and communities.

DFTA’s mission is to eliminate ageism and ensure the dignity and quality of life of diverse older adults. We also work to support caregivers through service, advocacy, and education.

The New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA) is the department of the government of New York City that provides support and information for older people (those over 60). Its regulations are compiled in title 69 of the New York City Rules. Lorraine Cortés-Vázquez has been the commissioner of DFTA since April 9, 2019.
