Chatham County Victim-Witness Assistance Program hosted their annual Remembrance Ceremony Thursday night at Great Gaines Chapel A.M.E. Church for family and friends still coping with senseless violence.
"The impact never goes away. People are being killed senselessly in our society and our community. They are here to remind each other and remind our community that it does have an impact and it doesn't go away," said Cheryl Rogers, Victim-Witness Assistance Program director.
While this program is only once a year, the Victim-Witness Assistance Program is open to anyone Monday through Friday all year long during normal business hours.
