Welcome to AWAKE

  AWAKE would like to extend our upmost gratitude to The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina for the $6,500 donation, and to Wade Hampton Golf Club for the $12,000 donation. With the donations AWAKE will be able to continue increasing and improving services for Child Abuse Victims and their families. We are so thankful to have the support in helping children build stronger futures!


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.

Donations Needed and Appreciated

This website includes a "Donate" button on each of the other AWAKE website pages to accept online donations via debit or credit cards. Please consider a contribution online or by mail, as AWAKE relies on local financial support to supplement operational funds from federal, state, and grant foundation sources. Mailed donations should be sent to P. O. Box 755, Sylva, NC 28779.


Thank you to our major funders!
