My name is Myra Williams, and I am BLESSED to say that Ms. RAMONA D. Miller rescued me from sex trafficking and drug addiction. I was afforded the opportunity to a new LIFE being saved by TRAPPED. There is no one in this Universe that cares for the lost ,hurting, damaged souls that have been tattered and stripped down, like Ms. RAMONA does.This isn't just something she does she lives it, and sees many terrible stories through to reborn Lives,and INDESCRIBABLE BLESSINGS. If it had not been for TRAPPED I possibly could have killed myself one way or another because of the lifestyle I was in, even though I didn't want to be here.I ask that you see what she Lives, and help her to help the UNCOUNTABLE number of lives waiting for her to walk onto their path ,and into the Ray's of light she restored my soul with.

Let's see where do I start since Ramona entered my life she has been a ear to alot of my problems not once has she judged me or looked at me differently. If anything she encourages me to look on the bright side of my dark days not just for me but my son as well. She has a heart of gold and will put others before her own personal needs. she has encouraging words of wisdom everyday allday. I dont open up to people very well but with her it was like I knew her all my life. If u need that one person who will never turn on u she is the one I see her being around for along time to come thank you for everything you have done and will do. And what she does for people with addiction is priceless alot of them are alone with nobody to turn to but Ramona is willing to be that somebody they do have. May God continue to bless her and keep doing what you are doing

A Voice in the Wilderness is by far the most life changing or should I say life saving nonprofit organization. Ramona and her team educated our community on what matters the most saving people! I was able to save my best friend from an overdose for the fact that I was educated on using the narcan and CPR. This organization goes to the deepest darkest places where others would never go. It's more than just passing out narcan, it's the way she makes those in the darkness feel by just stopping in checking on them, bringing a meal or toiletries or just a hug because sometimes that's what matters when your out there is just knowing there is someone who cares and that is definitely Ramona and her team.

Ramona Miller helps people from all walks of life. If you need help she is there. No judgement. She has done so much for her community from saving lives to rescuing human trafficking victims and everything in between. She helps more people in one day than most do in a lifetime. We need more people like her in our communities. Thank you for the work you do.

My experience with A voice in the wilderness has helped me through a rough time in my life. Meeting Ramona was life changing. I truly admire her dedication and loyalty to what she does for each individual she helps including my self. When she helps people she does it from the bottom of her heart, it can vary from individuals who struggle with a drug addiction,mental help issues, and people that are searching for stability,etc .She has the resources and knownledge to guide each person she helps. With out her doing what she does I wouldnt be where I am today.

The work Ramona D Miller does cannot be put into simple words...Her work is selfless, going beyond any imagined hopes or expectations. The lasting imprint on the people helped by A Voice In the Wilderness Empowerment Center echoes long after the interaction and that is because of the genuine compassionate care that is given. The greatest part is that there are no qualifications or boundaries to be eligible for the services offered except to have a need. With all that is plaguing our communities, the organization is truly amazing in all that they do!!

I have known Ramona Miller for years and I have worked with this nonprofit organization which helped me with my emotions, my family bond, my education basically changed my life. This organization made me feel protected and secured to know they are one on one anytime. I would recommend this organization to anyone they helps with everything and if your problem is something they can't help with then trust and believe they are connected with someone who does and they won't stop until you are helped
