To better serve our residents, Corvias has initiated a number of new efforts to improve service and support for service members who choose to live in a Corvias-managed Army or Air Force installation residence. Corvias has established The Corvias Commitment™, which is designed to improve its responsiveness, communication and commitment to excellent resident services across its military housing portfolio and expanding to its other partnerships.

We want contacting us to be hassle-free so we've set up a new dedicated service request line that is staffed locally Monday-Friday, 8am to 5pm. After hours, the line will roll over to our on-call service so you'll still be able to reach maintenance 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We encourage you to save this number in your phone for quick and easy access when you have a service request: 844-533-0456.
Corvias is excited to launch Corvias Connections, a series of weekly events held throughout the year at our Community Centers. We want our Community Centers to be the hub and heart of our communities. By actively inviting residents to come visit and engage with us we hope to grow stronger, more meaningful connections in our communities. Corvias will host a program launch party from 3pm – 5pm on March 8th at Colyer Forsyth, McClellan Place and Warner Peterson community centers. Stop by for free refreshments, snacks and get to know your Corvias team while playing family friendly games. Hope to see you there!
If you are a spouse of a deployed service member, Corvias offers the Helping Hands program which includes one hour of non-routine maintenance assistance to attend to those household jobs that are usually handled by the service member. Contact your Community Office for more information.
On March 26th Corvias residents will receive an e-mail from ARMYHousingSurvey@celassociates.com containing a link to the 2019 Army Survey. This important survey will help ensure the continued success of the RCI program in meeting your needs and will help guide the Army and Corvias in the development of future improvements to your homes and services. The survey results are confidential, so please share your true opinions and thoughts.
Be sure to contact your community office now to update your contact information so that you are able receive this valuable survey.
Mark your calendar and set your alarm for “Breakfast on the Go,” March 29th from 6:30 to 8:30 am. Be on the lookout for Corvias employees posted throughout your neighborhood ready to brighten your morning! We’ll be handing out a free and portable breakfast for residents to enjoy on the way to work, school or those just venturing out for free breakfast- because who doesn’t love FREE!?
Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. on March 10. Set all clocks forward one hour. It is also a good time to test smoke detectors. If alarm does not sound, please contact your Community Office immediately.
Kansas can experience extreme weather year round. However, the spring and early summer months pose a higher than usual risk for high winds, heavy rain, lightening, hail and tornadoes. Prepare and plan in advance for severe weather. Knowing the difference between a severe weather watch and warning can help determine what actions you will need to take. A watch is issued to alert people to the possibility of severe weather developing in the area. The conditions are very favorable for severe weather to occur at any moment. A warning is issued when severe weather has been sighted or has begun in your area.
Please take all warnings seriously. People typically have less than 10 minutes to seek shelter. Be prepared, have a plan. Do not leave your home if the severe weather sirens sound; find the safest spot in your home, such as:
- Safe room with door closed and locked
- Interior room with no windows (lower-level if a two-story home)
- Bathroom - inside the bathtub and away from windows
- Severe Thunderstorms – thunderstorms with high winds, hail and cloud to ground lightning, can form spring through early fall
- Tornadoes – violent rotating column of wind that can reach speeds of over 200 mph, form in thunderstorms generally spring and fall
- Flooding – heavy rainfall can cause localized flooding in low lying areas, can occur during any season if heavy rainfall occurs
Kansas Severe Weather Awareness Week is March 5 - 9 with a statewide tornado drill Tuesday, March 5 at 10:00 am. We encourage you to practice your storm safety plan with your family at this time or during that week. Stay alert to the potential for rapidly changing weather conditions via local television, local radio or NOAA weather radio. For additional information on emergency preparedness, please visit www.spc.noaa.gov or www.ready.army.mil.
Pool season will be here before you know it and Corvias has contracted Sandhills Aquatic Services, a division of the YMCA, to manage community pools for the 2019 pool season. If you are a past Fort Riley guard, a current certified lifeguard or looking to become a lifeguard contact them for training and employment opportunities: www.ymcaofthesandhills.org or call 910-624-4883.
