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 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.
Ginger was honored with the White House Champion of Change Award for Women Veterans in March of 2013 and Veterans Champion Award by the United Black Fund, Inc in July 2012. The DAV September-October 2011 issue highlight’s Ginger as the President and CEO of John 12:2, Inc discussing issues as it relates to women veterans at the 2011 Women Veterans Summit. Ginger is featured as a “Woman of Valor” in the December 2011 issue of Essence Magazine. In February 2012 the Washington Wizards honored Ginger and John 14:2, Inc. Ms. Miller was featured in the Washington Post as she supported John 14:2, Inc’s Women Veterans Lunch on December 27, 2011. The Prince George’s County Gazette featured articles on Ginger advocating for homeless veterans on November 5, 2009 and December 10, 2009.
Ginger served in the U.S. Navy from 1989 to 1992, received a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, and is currently simultaneously pursuing a master’s degree in nonprofit management and master’s of business administration at the University of Maryland University College.
She enjoys spending quality time with her husband of 23 years, William Miller, and her two sons, William Jr. and Andre James. Ginger enjoys meeting people, traveling, watching movies, and attending church.
