The Community Development's vision statement of "enriching our neighborhoods through community development leadership and innovation" supports the BB&T corporate philosophy to make our communities better places to live. BB&T strives to make a difference in the daily lives of individuals within our communities and also strengthen the overall economic vitality in our neighborhoods.

Our vision statement is built on our Community Development team striving for excellence while providing innovative and customized solutions for each neighborhood.
