Welcome to AWAKE

The Cedar Creek Racquet Club Donor Advised Fund representatives awarded $85,000 to non-profits at their Fall luncheon. AWAKE is so appreciative to be one of those fortunate recipients. AWAKE Victim Services Assistant Heather Odom and Executive Director Renée Coward joined Donor Advisees and Table Hosts, Howard and Elaine Meister for the luncheon. Funds from the Cedar Creek Fund will be used to increase services to child abuse victims and their families.





Founded in 1993 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, AWAKE serves to educate and advocate for the prevention of child abuse and neglect in Jackson County, NC.

In addition to prevention services, AWAKE is a Children's Advocacy Center and coordinates services of local agencies for families during abuse investigations. We hope you enjoy our site and that the resources here are beneficial to you.
