“I am a
Dwelling House
Savings and Loan
Success Story”

Citizen Community East
Federal Credit Union

It was my first job out of school. My wife had only been working for two years.
We didn’t have a lot of money saved, but we did have it in the right place,
Dwelling House Savings & Loan Association. Dwelling House believes in
helping people like us. We wanted to buy a house not far from where I grew up,
and Dwelling House loaned us the money we needed. They are committed to
making it possible for young people to own their own homes, and they believe
in our future together.

7249 Frankstown Ave
Pittsburgh, PA 15208

That was five years ago, and now we have two children, a boy and a girl. I was
proud to bring them home from the hospital to the house Dwelling House
helped us buy.

412-247-5600

When we make the house payments now, I add a little in for the savings account for their college education. I’m saving for my children’s future now at
Dwelling House Savings & Loan Association.
DWELLING HOUSE SAVINGS & LOAN ASSOCIATION
Working with you for a better future for all of us.
