Unitus has been a part of the Oregon community since 1937, when a group of Pacific Telephone & Telegraph employees pooled their resources to provide affordable loans to their co-workers. Today, Unitus serves 15 counties in Oregon and the entire state of Washington with a commitment to innovation, inclusiveness, and providing inspirational service.
