OPERATION SAFETY NET
Operation Safety Net (OSN) provides emergency funding for women veterans who are at risk of being homeless. The funding provided is coupled with our financial literacy program, to ensure that women vets don’t find themselves in financial hardship again.
Women Veterans Interactive’s Outreach Programs are unique because they are designed to meet women veterans at their specific point of need and encompass three of our major mission components: Empowerment, Unification, and Interaction.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Health and wellness are both critical components of recovery for military service members, veterans and their families. This is why numerous organizations and government agencies are looking at wellness and quality of life initiatives to help veterans.
In 2014, WVI committed to recruit military and veteran women who are seeking employment for a free, three-tier interactive workforce development program. WVI intends to reach a total of 3,000 women and ultimately assist 1,000 in becoming gainfully employed.
Mrs. Ginger Miller, a former homeless service disabled veteran, formed Women Veterans Interactive as a division of her non-profit organization, John 14:2, Inc. under the following creed:
John 14:2, Inc is a nonprofit organization whose core mission is to assist military veterans and their families experiencing homelessness, substance abuse, and mental illness to reintegrate back into the community, retain permanent housing, maintain sobriety, and regain their pride, dignity, and most of all, hope. Since the inception of John 14:2, Inc in 2009, the organization has helped over 300 veterans. John 14:2 Inc was instrumental in hosting the first Prince George’s County Homeless Veteran Stand Down.
In the summer of 2011, Ginger started Women Veterans Interactive, a division of John 14:2, Inc that is dedicated to serving and supporting women veterans while meeting them at their points of need. In March 2012, Women Veterans Interactive received a Governor’s Citation from Governor O’Malley for the dedication and service to women veterans. Since the inception of Women Veterans Interactive, the organization has supported over 500 women veterans through outreach and support services.
JOCKS & PEARLS GALA
WVI will host its Inaugural Jocks and Pearls Gala in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, March 24, 2017. Professional athletes, celebrities and military members will gather for this noteworthy event to raise awareness and funds to support homeless women veterans and their children.
