Bob Hope Village is also home to the Bob Gates Welcome Center, the Garden of Hope, the Dolores Hope All Faiths Chapel, Air Force Enlisted Village headquarters in the D. N. Masone Administration Building, and Hawthorn House, an assisted living and memory support residence.

At Bob Hope Village, residents share memories of military life, build lasting friendships, and live comfortably in a community with their pride and independence intact.

 

The Mom Rule

In 2000, former President and CEO, CMSAF #9 James C. Binnicker, instituted a philosophy known as “The Mom Rule” to ensure that all residents are treated with respect and dignity.​ “The Mom Rule” guides all Air Force Enlisted Village employees to ask themselves these three questions when working with residents or making decisions about a resident’s care.

  1. Would I do this to my mom?

  2. Would I do this for my mom?

  3. Would my mom approve?
