Meet WVI’S President: Ginger Miller

Ginger Miller is a native New Yorker and former homeless service disabled veteran. After taking care of her husband, a disabled veteran who has suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for over a decade and experiencing homelessness with her family, Ginger decided to form John 14:2, Incorporated.
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.

Ginger’s advocacy and outreach efforts have lead her to host veteran roundtable discussions in Annapolis, Maryland with state Veterans Agencies and elected representatives.  She facilitates workshops for veteran caregivers and frequently receives invitations to speak at various government agencies including the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, HUD, and the Secret Service.  In March of 2010 Ginger was invited by Senator Patricia Murray of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs to advocate with U.S. senators at a press conference to save potential cuts to the HUD VASH Program.

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.

Keeping in the spirit of service, Ginger currently volunteers her time to serve our nation’s veterans through several state and local appointments to include Chairwoman of the Prince George’s County Veterans Commission, Commissioner of the Maryland Commission for Women, Member of the Maryland Veterans Resilience Advisor Council, Maryland Minority Business Economic Advisory Committee, and is a member of the Maryland Caregivers Support Coordinating Council.
