The story begins in the early 1930's when it was all but impossible for people of color to obtain mortgage loans. There has always been an undeniable connection between "where" one lives and "how" one lives. As a rule, access to quality housing and a good neighborhood also translates to improved educational and employment opportunities. In the 30's, the future looked quite bleak due to a lack of access to better housing for Black citizens. However, "No" was not an option the founders of Illinois Service Federal were willing to accept

Carver was founded in 1948 to serve African-American communities whose residents, businesses, and institutions had limited access to mainstream financial services. Today, Carver is the largest African-American operated bank in the United States. Since its inception, the Bank has continuously been headquartered in Harlem, and most of our eight branches and 24/7 ATM Centers are located in low- to moderate- income neighborhoods. Carver Bank has been designated by the U.S. Treasury Department as a Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) because of Carver's community-focused banking services and dedication to the economic viability and revitalization of underserved neighborhoods. A measure of its progress in achieving this goal includes the Bank's most recent "Outstanding" Community Reinvestment Act rating.
