Fresh Start Checking
Fresh Start Checking is made in part for you with Bank On Shreveport – a city-wide initiative created to help the unbanked and under-banked achieve and maintain financial stability. If one or more apply to you, you could be unbanked or under-banked: no bank account; rely on check-cashing services or pay day lenders for much of your financial transactions, made a mistake with a bank or credit union in the past and are now restricted from getting a bank account. As a partner with Bank On Shreveport, we are committed to helping you and your family take the first steps towards financial security.
