Langley provides a full range of services to help members meet their individual financial goals.

Langley was recognized twice in 2020 for its community impact. Habitat for Humanity of South Hampton Roads awarded Langley the 2020 Dream Builder Award for dedication to its mission throughout 2020. And, Coastal Virginia Magazine selected Langley as a 2020 Community Impact Award recipient, given to 10 Hampton Roads businesses that go above and beyond to make a difference for others.

In 2020, Langley for Families Foundation donated $846,718, a 28% increase, and Langley Federal Credit Union donated $555,750. Funds were generated from generous employees, members and successful fundraising events, including the annual golf tournament and new cash raffle.

“We are so proud that Langley can have such a positive impact in our community,” said Tom Ryan, president and CEO of Langley. “In a year where a global pandemic, economic shutdowns and social unrest impacted millions, our support to critical needs in Hampton Roads is even more vital.”
