Living with Lincoln
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! At Lincoln Military Housing your family is our top priority. For this reason we have teamed up with ResidentSurveys.com, a division of SatisFacts Research, to provide online resident satisfaction surveys at the time you move in, after work has been completed on your home and when you move out. Your feedback is an integral part of helping us achieve our goal to provide military families exemplary service and a superior home environment. Surveys are brief, can be submitted anonymously and participants will be entered to win $500! We look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback as your opinion is the most important one.
*Work Order Completion Surveys cover the prior week’s service requests that were completed that week.
Resident Energy Conservation Program
With national security and the economy being threatened by our dependence on foreign oil, the Department of Defense has set a goal of reducing energy consumption in the US by 20%. The Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) was created by the DoD to help achieve that goal and assure a better quality of life for you, your family and generations to come. Lincoln Military Housing is proud to support this important DoD initiative.
Energy conservation is important to the nation and our armed forces. By encouraging and incentivizing energy conservation for families living in privatized family housing, RECP can save energy and save you money.
The funds saved by RECP will be used to improve your homes, playgrounds, community centers and, therefore, your quality of life. In the long term, you will also be helping to improve the environment, preserve America’s natural resources and reduce our dependence on foreign oil and other fossil fuels.

At Lincoln Military Housing, we know how important safety is to you and your family. And there is no place more important to feel safe than in your home - as you play, rest and relax. We’d like to share with you some guidelines about keeping everyone safe at home – especially small children with exploring, adventurous, little hands and big bright minds! Safety should be a way of thinking in our daily life, not just a list of rules to follow. But as life gets busy, sometimes safe behavior can be forgotten. The motivation to take action, change unsafe behavior and put precautionary measures in place, only requires a desire to protect those you care about. Please review these safety tips for more valuable safety information. We hope you pass along the information to your friends, family and neighbors.
Hot Safety topic: WINDOW SAFETY
Tips from the National Safety Council
- Keep your windows closed and locked when children are around. When opening windows for ventilation, open windows that a child cannot reach, or in the case of a double-hung window, open the top sash only.
- Set and enforce rules about keeping children's play away from windows or patio doors.
- Falling through an insect screen, open window or glass can be fatal or cause serious injury.
- Keep furniture - or anything children can climb - away from windows. Children may use such objects as a climbing aid.
