Fresh Start Banking

The First Step Alliance Fresh Start Banking Program provides returning citizens with access to affordable banking services. We make this Program available through our relationships with established not-for-profit financial institutions that offer fair and inclusive financial services. 


Our partnerships with Dora Financial and the reentry community make it easy for returning citizens to open a safe and affordable checking account using their mobile device. Dora Everyday Checking is an all-digital bilingual banking experience powered by credit unions, featuring a fee-free, no-minimum checking account and no credit check. 


Download the free Dora app on an iPhone or Android device in English or Spanish.


Open an account in minutes and say goodbye to expensive check cashing services!
