SAN DIEGO, Oct. 14, 2021 – Mission Fed Credit Union, the largest member-owned, not-for-profit, full-service financial institution exclusively serving San Diego County, has officially opened its 33rd branch site, located at 2267 S. El Camino Real, Suite A, Oceanside, 92054.

“At a time in our industry where we’re seeing banks and credit unions close branch doors, we’re fortunate to open a new branch for our members – and in a location where we’re needed most,” said Debra Schwartz, President & CEO of Mission Fed. “We’re proud to serve our North County members, and happily greeting new members as well.”

In celebration of the new branch, and true to Mission Fed’s commitment to the community, Mission Fed leadership presented YMCA Youth & Family Services (YFS) with a $1,000 donation. YMCA YFS is a branch of the YMCA of San Diego County devoted to social services. The unique programming offered by YFS has been addressing San Diego’s most pressing social issues since 1970. Specific to the Oceanside community, they help homeless youth/young people with transitional housing, skill development, behavioral and mental health services, and more.

Schwartz added, “One of my favorite things to do is give back to our communities. We feel good knowing these funds will go toward helping provide safety, shelter and crucial needs to transitional aged youth, homeless teens and young adults who have aged out of the foster care system.”

The credit union celebrated its grand opening in a scaled-back fashion, due to ongoing Covid-19 concerns, but was still able to offer a variety of unique and celebratory offers. Like all Mission Fed locations, the Oceanside Hwy 78 branch offers friendly, helpful and experienced representatives to serve members and assist with important financial needs. The organization offers a full line of financial services. Visit for details.

Mission Fed previously announced longtime employee and Oceanside resident Danielle Gonzalez as its Assistant Vice President, Branch Manager for the branch. Gonzalez has been with Mission Fed for over 20 years, serving in many different roles including branch management for San Marcos and the organization’s first Oceanside branch (at Mission Ave. and Douglas Dr.).

The Mission Fed Oceanside Hwy 78 branch is open Monday-Friday, 9:00am to 4:00pm and Saturday from 9:00am to 1:00pm
