We began our annual preventative maintenance and assessment program last month. During these inspections, a member of our maintenance team visits each home in the community to ensure it is safe and free from maintenance and repair issues. We will survey the condition and age of appliances, confirm that safety systems are working properly and check your home for general condition and work order needs.
The assessment will take place throughout the year, with approximately 35 homes being assessed each month. We will notify families in advance of the annual inspections taking place in your home. And, as a benefit to our residents, you do not need to be present for the assessment. Thank you in advance for helping us make this important visit to your home a success.
If you have any service requests for your home, please let us know! You can call 316-347-2951 or submit a service request online. Our number one priority is to provide you and your family with continuing support through outstanding customer service.

Military Saves Week begins February 24! Saving your hard-earned money year-round is a great way to ensure your family’s financial preparedness. Take this week to review your saving plans. Set your goals, even small ones, and start saving now. For more information, please visit www.militarysaves.org to review savings tips, tools, resources, and strategies.
It is important to recognize that, despite your savings plans, there may still be financial emergencies that cost more than your nest egg can cover. If you are ever in an unexpected financial emergency, the Air Force Aid Society can help. The Society can assist with living expenses, emergency travel, vehicle expenses, funeral expenses, and other emergencies. For more information, please visit www.afas.org.

Still using plastic grocery bags at the Commissary? Consider bringing your own reusable bags. It takes a 15-year-old tree to produce 700 grocery bags.
