TAG is mourning a tremendous loss. Billie Miller will be deeply missed by everyone fortunate enough to meet her, but especially those of us who worked with her as the Volunteer Coordinator at New Beginnings. She was a true “Champion” to anyone committed to safe, healthy and loving relationships. Billie demonstrated her dedication to victim safety each and every day. She also developed strong bonds with “her” volunteers. In fact, Billie initially talked to each of TAG’s Founders way back in 2006 to see if we would be interested in an innovative and unique vision for social change. Over time, that vision became the Thrivers Action Group.
As former New Beginnings clients and/or volunteers, TAG’s Founders knew Billie and she knew us. We admired her years of service and shared her hope for a future where everyone is safe. Billie believed so strongly in TAG’s mission that she graciously accepted our invitation to serve on the Board of Directors after her retirement from New Beginnings. While her participation was important in so many ways — Billie’s wisdom, advice and insight guided TAG’s path and strengthened our confidence. She will always be remembered with love, gratitude and admiration.
TAG is making plans to create a symbolic memorial to Billie. If you would like to participate — please watch for updates on our Facebook page.
