About Us

What is AWAKE?

AWAKE stands for Adults Working and Advocating for Kids' Empowerment.  We coordinate Jackson County's services for children who have been sexually or physically abused.  AWAKE provides a "child friendly" environment where the child victims can be interviewed.  

How Do We Help?

We are a nonprofit organization focused on advocating for child abuse victims. Our motivated, caring staff work vigorously on educating the community to recognize signs of child abuse while also helping them understand the importance of reporting abuse. 

Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission throughout the community, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
