About the Air Force Enlisted Village
The Air Force Enlisted Village (AFEV) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose core mission is to provide a safe, secure home for surviving spouses of retired enlisted U.S. Airmen. AFEV operates Bob Hope Village, an independent living community with an assisted living and memory support residence, Hawthorn House.
Financial Assistance for Surviving Spouses In Need
AFEV understands that low pay and frequent military moves leave some spouses without careers, home equities, retirement plans or significant assets, or an unexpected tragedy or insurmountable medical expenses can deplete retirement savings. AFEV’s Benevolent Fund provides financial assistance for surviving spouses of retired enlisted airmen while residing at Bob Hope Village and Hawthorn House. Here, they live among peers sharing memories of military life without the stigma normally associated with subsidized housing.
AFEV provides basic essentials that are usually taken for granted: a safe home, security, dignity, independence, and camaraderie. On-site conveniences provide worry-free living for our residents. These include transportation, household maintenance, wellness workshops, beauty salons, chapels, café, convenience store, activities program, social events, libraries, fitness room with classes, and beautiful parks and gardens.
-Surviving spouses of retired enlisted Air Force, Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve.
-Surviving spouses whose enlisted sponsors served in other branches of the service when space is available.
