As a faith-based community development corporation (CDC) AWAKE Incorporated develops initiatives that deal with the causes of problems in ways that build on the strengths of the people and community.   This approach is known as asset-based community development , and runs counter to the more common "need-based" model of community development.

AWAKE Incorporated is outcome-oriented, striving for a healthier, sustainable community.   All programs and initiatives at AWAKE are conceived with sustainability in mind, and must be:

•  Desired and needed by the community
•  Financially viable
•  Mission appropriate
