While Mid Oregon Credit Union is the largest credit union in terms of Central Oregon members and assets, we are not a large credit union. Because we are only do business in Central Oregon with all our staff and our headquarters here, we have a bigger impact than our asset or membership size. Many in our community appreciate the personal feel of our branches and the engagement of all our team in the community.
We provide member tools and resources common to much larger financial institutions. A big part of that is our investment in technology and processes. However, a significant way we increase the impact of our services is through financial services partners. Two of those are Arbor Mortgage Group and Cascade insurance Center.
Arbor has been a partner of Mid Oregon since 2008, and Arbor has had loan officers located in Mid Oregon facilities ever since. From their website: “Arbor Mortgage Group works hard to be the most respected mortgage company in all the markets we serve. We reap the personal, professional and financial rewards of loving what we do: helping people get the home financing they deserve.”
Kevin Tucker who, along with Beau Crotwell, alternate working out of Mid Oregon’s East Bend Branch shares what is important to him and Arbor about working with us:
“Arbor Mortgage Group is proud to be partnered with Mid Oregon Credit Union. As a full service mortgage lender, we aim to provide a personal, positive and professional experience for all borrowers and prospective borrowers. We take the time to listen to the Mid Oregon CU members, then we invest our time to find the best loan solutions available. ”
“By being located in an office at the East Bend MOCU branch, we are easy to find and quick to respond to all inquiries. We also partner with MOCU loan officers to create custom solutions for members when appropriate. Through this partnership we can find options for almost any situation.
Cascade Insurance Center

Lauren Olson, Cascade Insurance Center Account Executive and graduate of Mt View High School in Bend, has deep reasons for believing in the partnership with Mid Oregon:
“Between Cascade Insurance Center and Mid Oregon Credit Union I have never felt more at home. These two businesses have such strong values and philosophies that line up with my own beliefs. Beliefs that we are here to help and the wellbeing of the member is always number one.
“When I was first asked to be a partner of Mid Oregon Credit Union I was excited to be part of a local credit union who went from one Bend location to seven thriving branches throughout Central Oregon. But the more I got to know the Mid Oregon I realized it is more than a financial institution doing well, it is a lifestyle. Between Cascade Insurance Center and Mid Oregon Credit Union I have never felt more at home. These two businesses have such strong values and philosophies that line up with my own beliefs. Beliefs that we are here to help and the wellbeing of the member is always number one. At Mid Oregon that is always how the conversation starts, how can we better serve the member before anything else?
“I like to think of myself as an Insurance Helper, rather than Insurance Agent. I speak the insurance “language” and have the member’s best interest at heart, always. I am here to help ease the pains of selecting a policy, paying the premium, and in an unfortunate incident happens where you must use your insurance for a claim. I find the best coverage, at the most competitive price, and I am here to help when a member needs advice. At Mid Oregon Credit Union or Cascade Insurance Center you can always rest assured that you have a team behind you fighting for your best interest and to protecting your lifestyle.”
