How you can help AWAKE

AWAKE is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. We depend on the generosity and support of the community in order to provide services to abused and neglected children and their families in Jackson County. Funds are raised from individuals, corporations, foundations, government grants, and special fundraisers. Volunteers help build public awareness, raise funds, provide office support, and help with special events and mail outs.

Spring is a Meaningful Time to Support the AWAKE Children's Advocacy Center

With the celebration of April Child Abuse Prevention Month, and Mother's and Father's Day coming soon, and their emphasis on the importance of family, this is a  meaningful time of the year to make a donation to AWAKE. It is a time to celebrate children, parents, and grandparents and acknowledge your love and appreciation for them.  You can also make a donation by sending a check by mail  to the following address:


PO Box 755

Sylva, NC 28779

Remember that your donation is tax deductible and a receipt will be provided!
