AME Church

Mother Emanuel Resiliency Project

The June 17, 2015, massacre at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. had a profound effect on the families of those who were killed, witnesses and survivors, the Mother Emanuel congregation, and many others. Nine partner organizations received funding from a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime designed to address the needs of those affected by this tragic event by providing a broad range of information and services. This website describes the project, the services it provides, and the organizations that are providing these services. The website also includes information that is useful to the broader community as well as those who have been directly affected by this tragedy.
