Did you know that at Eielson, kids are one of the largest groups of residents. There are almost 1,100 children and Corvias plans to celebrate our favorite and most energetic residents!
April is the month of the military child. This month we celebrate the greatness of kids who weather and thrive in the unique environment that is life in the Air Force. Last year, Corvias joined the “Purple Up!” initiative and we invite you to join us again this year. We are inviting the community to honor our military children April 15th by wearing purple. We invite you to stop by the leasing office on Wednesday, April 15th for a sweet treat. You can read more in our Month of the Military Child article below.
We hope you will join us in April; feel free to let your friends know and bring them along. Help us make military life great for the kids at Eielson AFB.
Finally, April will be the first time in months where the daily high temperature will average above freezing. Snow will start melting and before we know it summer will be here, but we are not entirely past the cold weather. Please do not open your windows or attach hoses to hose bibs. The temperature can still drop suddenly and may cause damage to your home if the windows are open or a hose is connected to a spigot.
As the snow starts to melt I want to remind residents to pick up any pet waste that has accumulated over the winter. We will start lawn care services in the warmer months and yards need to be tidy for the landscape team.
Again, thank you for your service and sacrifice to our nation. If you have any questions or concerns, you can call us at 907-372-2300 or stop by the Community Office.
Corvias Military Living
Late last year, families living on-post received a housing survey from SatisFacts to determine resident satisfaction. The data collected from this survey, as well as the quarterly RCI surveys, helps Corvias improve your experience living on-post.
Out of a possible 5.00 score, Corvias Military Living residents gave the company a 4.29 in the 2014 survey. Corvias earned the Superior Service distinction at 32 of the military communities the company manages throughout the country with a score of 4.0 to 4.49. Eight communities earned the highest honors, Exceptional Service achievement, with a score of 4.5 or above. This award marks the seventh year in a row that Corvias has ranked first nationally in the SatisFacts Annual Resident Survey, and the eighth consecutive year it has achieved the Superior Company Score award.
"We are committed to our mission of improving the quality of life for the service members and their families living on all of Corvias' installations," said Chuck Parker, Division President of Corvias Military Living. "This award speaks volumes about how passionate Corvias employees are nationwide about their jobs and those they serve. Achieving the highest rating from our residents is a tremendous honor and we are humbled by their recognition of our efforts."

80 to 90 percent of energy used to wash clothes is used to heat the water. To save energy, consider washing your clothes in cold water.
April is Month of the Military Child. During this month, we take time to recognize the sacrifices of our military children, and celebrate their strength, courage and resiliency. Our youngest heroes serve by adapting to frequent moves, change of schools, parental deployments, and life transitions.
In conjunction with Month of the Military Child, Purple Up! is an initiative calling the community to show support for children in military families. You can do this by wearing the color purple on April 15th. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Marine red, and Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard blue.
Corvias Military Living would like to salute our military children and show appreciation for all that they do!
Apply now! Spouses of active-duty service members are eligible to apply for $5,000 Educational Grants for college. Applications are due May 7 and are available at corviasfoundation.org.
Corvias Military Living will require a surface-clean condition at move-out. The surface-clean requirement is designed to ease the “check-out” process for military families and eliminate “white glove” inspections. It is no longer necessary to hire a cleaning team to achieve the level of cleanliness considered acceptable for move out. If you would like to hire a cleaner or cleaning team please feel free to do so, but it is no longer necessary.
Surface-clean condition implies that a home is left clean throughout. When a home is cleaned regularly, it should only require a wipe down and sweep/vacuum at move-out to deliver surface-clean condition. All personal items and trash need to be removed from the home. If you have specific questions, please call the Community office.
Please remove any snow that has accumulated around basement windows. Basement windows may be used as an exit in an emergency and should be kept clear of snow. If you have any questions or need assistance please call the Community Office at 907-372-2300.
