Halloween is always a fun time for our families. Whether you are dressing up or carving a Jack-O-Lantern, I would ask that you please keep safety in mind. Observing common safety tips and common sense can help you make the most of your Halloween season and make it as enjoyable for your kids as it is for you!
October is fire prevention month. To help keep you and your family safe, your home comes with a fire extinguisher. If for some reason you do not have a fire extinguisher in your home, please call the community office and we will provide one for you. In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents our community escaping safely from a fire our having their lives in tragedy.
Smoke detectors are also in all Corvias homes and are checked once a year by a maintenance technician during your yearly preventative maintenance inspection. A good practice is to change the batteries twice a year when you change your clocks for Daylight Savings Time.
At Corvias we enjoy taking care of the families who call Eglin AFB home. Thank you and your family for your continued service to our country.

“Hi, my name is Camo. I was recently adopted by my new humans. I have a little sister that I love so much! She loves chasing me and throwing my ball. My Dad is the best too. He taught me how to shake hands and play tug-o- war. My mommy is still trying to teach me to behave, but I'm getting there. I sound pretty loud and sometimes mean, but I am just a sweetheart who only wants to be loved and played with. If you ever see me on my many walks, don't hesitate to say hi. I may attack you with kisses!”

The Foundation has awarded over $7 million to military families since 2006
East Greenwich, R.I. (September 19, 2017) – Corvias Foundation, a private, charitable foundation and the charitable arm of Corvias, has been committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education since 2006. Helping military spouses overcome economic hurdles by allowing them to equip themselves with the tools and accreditation to join the workforce has always been a key focus of the organization. This year, Corvias Foundation has awarded scholarships totaling $100,000, each up to $5,000, to spouses of active-duty service members across the country.
“With active duty military families moving 2.4 times as often as civilians, or about every two to three years, we’re acutely aware of the barriers facing military spouses in their pursuit for employment opportunities,” said Maria Montalvo, Foundation Executive Director. “We are humbled by the perseverance and drive exhibited by every single one of these spouses and it’s a tremendous honor for all of us to play a role in their educational and professional journey.”
While each spouse comes from a unique background and they all have their own individual goals, there is a strong common thread of aspiring to help those who need a champion. For example, several of the recipients will further their studies to pursue work that helps and supports military families, a perfect encapsulation of the Foundation’s ripple-effect of giving. Among this year’s scholarship recipients are aspiring psychologists, social workers, nurses, physical therapists, and teachers.
Since 2006, Corvias Foundation has awarded more than $7 million through 385 scholarships to military spouses and children at 13 different Army and Air Force installations. Following are our 2017 scholarship recipients:
