“I had the opportunity to meet with the organization to learn more about their vision and I knew we needed to help,” said Marlo Long of BB&T. The Golden Girls Group Home is a nonprofit, residential therapeutic group home for girls who have been removed from their homes for a wide variety of heartbreaking reasons. At the home, they find unconditional love, treatment, peer support and healing.

Unfortunately, these vulnerable girls are discharged between the ages of 18-21 and are often on the street. To address the issue, Golden Heart Apartments was created. The 11-unit, fully furnished apartment complex provides affordable housing to those aging out of the group home.

BB&T is proud to have provided predevelopment mini-grants, helped secure an Atlanta Affordable Housing Program grant, provided the construction financing and plans to provide financial education to the residents.

Congratulations BB&T Corporation!
