Our Mission, Vision and History
Freedom’s mission is to be a trusted partner by creating a culture of people helping people that meets the needs of our members and the communities we serve.
Offer financial opportunity, choice and value while building relationships that provide a memorable experience in the lives of our members and the community we serve.
Freedom Federal Credit Union began in 1953 as MATCOM Federal Credit Union. The Credit Union started in Baltimore and later moved to Harford County in support of the Edgewood Arsenal, (which became part of Aberdeen Proving Ground). We received our Harford County community charter in 1999 and changed our name to Freedom Federal Credit Union in 2000. In 2020, the NCUA awarded Freedom an expansion to our community charter to include Baltimore County. Today Freedom serves individuals who live, work, worship, volunteer, or attend school in Harford and Baltimore Counties, as well as their families. We also support local businesses with savings, checking, loans, and other business services. We’re proud to live and work in the communities we serve!
Freedom has a long tradition of serving the military community that continues today. In addition, we offer special partner benefits to Harford and Baltimore County Schools and University of Maryland – Upper Chesapeake Health Systems, as well as numerous small businesses throughout Harford and Baltimore Counties.
