Supporting Military Members & Families
Military members and families sacrifice greatly to safeguard our country. So the Fort Meade Alliance is proud to do our part to improve their quality of life.
- Resiliency: The FMA, through its FMA Foundation, is embarking on a $3.6-million campaign to convert the historic Kuhn Hall on Fort George G. Meade into a Resiliency and Education Center for military personnel, their families and the overall Department of Defense community. In the past, the FMA has outfitted the post’s Soldier and Family Assistance Center, compiled a comprehensive guide of all existing resiliency services on the installation, and helped Fort Meade qualify for a Healthy Base Initiative pilot program.
- Tapestry Grant: Military children face special challenges. So the Fort Meade Alliance, in partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Schools, secured a Tapestry grant from the Department of Defense Education Agency to provide teachers with seminars about the nature of military family life. The FMA is also creating a resource guide to alert teachers to services available to military families, and working with Pershing Hill Elementary School to help it qualify for the Winning at Wellness initiative.
- Military Spouses: The annual Fort Meade Military Spouse Job Fair is impressive and helpful, but also exhausting. Each year, the Fort Meade Alliance hosts a Relaxation Station at the fair where job seekers can rest, enjoy refreshments, get a massage and talk with other military spouses.
