Our Mission:

The Air Force Enlisted Village’s mission is to provide a home for indigent widows of retired Air Force enlisted personnel. Throughout the years, our organization has expanded to provide a home for mothers of active-duty and retired airmen, retired Air Force enlisted couples, and widows and retired couples of other military services.

A One-of-a-Kind Community:

Air Force Enlisted Village (AFEV) is a one-of-a-kind community located along the beautiful Emerald Coast of northwest Florida. Air Force widows, mothers, widowers, and couples of all military services come here to live at Bob Hope Village, our independent living facility, or at Hawthorn House, our assisted living facility with memory care.

Although we have expanded to provide a home for other members of our military family, Air Force enlisted widows are still the focus of our nonprofit organization. The Air Force widow with the greatest need is given housing priority, and none are refused assistance due to financial status. All residents are treated with respect, and our Director of Admissions takes special care to protect the privacy of residents’ financial affairs.
