“Had it not been for the Charleston Area Justice Ministry and the Nehemiah Assembly, the City of Charleston would not have thought to have gone to this extra effort to help the chronically unemployed.  I am very grateful to all of you for making this recommendation…”

—Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr.


“It’s very refreshing to me that [CAJM] is providing a solution and promoting a solution.  And quite frankly, having been an officeholder off and on since 1977, it’s refreshing to me that they want to question me on that.”

— County Council Member Victor Rawl


“I’ve been here 23 years in this area.  This is the first time I’ve seen any real result of churches working together across denominational lines.  The beneficial, long-term side effect of this movement is it’s bringing the faith community together in a real way.”

— Bruce Jayne


“This organization provides parishes with a vehicle to powerfully answer God’s call to do justice by solving serious community problems, as well as to develop lay leadership and build strong relationships among diverse congregations.”

— Bishop of Charleston, Reverend Robert E. Guglielmone


“I know you’re (CAJM) a very powerful organization.  You’re a wonderful, powerful advocate in the community.”

— Dr. Gerrita Postlewait, Superintendent of Charleston County Schools
