About Kuhn Hall

The Education and Resiliency Center at Kuhn Hall gives the Fort Meade community the long-awaited access to education and resiliency resources.

It took 11 years of planning, a $5.1 million fundraising campaign, meticulous processing of an 800-item requirements list and extensive collaboration with six garrison commanders, numerous on-post agencies and innumerable community members to transform Fort George G. Meade’s historic Kuhn Hall into a modern Education and Resiliency Center.

About the Transformation

“The partnership and fortitude of the Garrison, the Fort Meade Alliance, the FMA Foundation and the community – which began in 2011 – could not have been stronger as we progressed through requirements, design, fundraising, construction and now the official opening of this vital center,” said FMA Foundation President Deon Viergutz. “The Education and Resiliency Center will connect and enrich the Fort Meade installation by providing an integrated system of care that will help our greatest resource – our people.”

The Education and Resiliency Center delivers on the five pillars of resiliency — emotional, physical, social, family and spiritual. Individuals and their families are able to take advantage of essential programs that will help them with issues or concerns and manage the challenge they face.

The center provides onsite classes, counseling and events, but also services as a hub to connect individuals with services elsewhere on the post, with the military and out through surrounding communities. The services range from guidance counseling and transition efforts to mental health counseling, wellness programs and financial planning.

A premier benefit of this spaces is hosting education programs needed to support successful career placement and continuing education as well as expanding existing programs to spouses and broader audiences.
