Corvias has a special program to assist families while their service member is serving on a deployment, unaccompanied tour or dependent restricted tour or extended TDY. Our Helping Hands Program is designed to help families with household projects beyond those that are part of the normal work order process. Projects may include: assembling small items or furniture, hanging art or pictures and installing baby gates to name a few. Residents that qualify can request assistance with a one-hour helping hands project each month. To initiate the program, please provide your Community office a copy of the service members’ orders.
Our spotlight award winners are: W01 Michael Dowd, W01 George Freitas and SSg Alexander Kalal. Winners will receive a $25 gift card. Spotlight Awards are given to residents who demonstrate pride in their home and community. Examples of this may be keeping a tidy home, enhancing landscaping around the home or helping another resident out. Thank you for helping to make Fort Rucker a great palce to live!

Corvias Foundation, a private, charitable foundation and the charitable arm of Corvias Group, has been committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education since 2006. This year, its 10th, Corvias Foundation has awarded college scholarships of up to $50,000 to 11 outstanding high school students, marking the 11th class of scholarship recipients.
The scholarships provide reliable, recurring financial assistance over each student’s four years of study, as well as a support network that is committed to his or her academic and professional growth. Students receive scholarships in the amount of up to $12,500 per year for four years to pursue a secondary education at colleges and universities around the country.
“Each year, we are awed by the drive and determination in these military family members to reach high in their goals and dreams, and all the while, giving back to their communities,” said Maria Montalvo, Foundation Executive Director, “Being able to support our scholars financially and through ongoing mentoring and other opportunities is an honor we cannot quantify.”
Corvias Foundation awarded the scholarships based on merit and need. Each student was required to respond to four questions that highlighted different aspects of their lives as students and as members of an active-duty military family. This fall, each student will be attending the four-year institution of his or her choice to pursue their academic careers.
“The impressive background and equally strong ambition of the scholars never ceases to amaze me and we have another phenomenal class this year,” said John Picerne. “It’s exciting to see a group of kids from different parts of the country, coast to coast, in fact, share the common bond of a military background and also share the road to college. The college experience is about much more than academic success, and we look forward to seeing how these next four years, and more, help to shape these future leaders of America.”
Since 2006, the Corvias Foundation has awarded more than $6.5 million through 349 educational grants and scholarships to spouses and children at 13 different Army and Air Force installations. Among this year’s scholarship recipients are aspiring anthropologists, journalists, cardiologists, dieticians and psychologists.
