Persons are eligible to become AFRH residents who:
Married couples are welcome, but both must be eligible in their own right. Veterans who have been convicted of a felony or are not free of drug, alcohol, or psychiatric problems are ineligible to become a resident.
Veterans must be able to live independently upon admission to the AFRH. This means being able to care for personal needs, attend a dining facility for meals, and keep all medical appointments. Fees for independent living are 40 % of total current income (not to exceed $1,425 / month).
