OCB ~ Partnering in the Community
Ojai Community Bank is genuinely involved in the communities we serve.
Our staff, directors, shareholders and customers represent just about every facet of the Ojai and Santa Paula communities.
As a TRUE community bank, we believe it is important to be involved in the community we live in and serve. We put on events at the Bank, volunteer for service around the town and support many organizations in their mission. We are making a difference with more than just our dollars.
