Currently CHAFA is an all-volunteer organization.  No staff are paid. 

All Volunteer Staff are residents of the Syracuse area where they make their home. We have a combination of Americans and Chinese. Staff members embrace the Christian faith and are committed to welcoming our Chinese friends with love and the gospel of Jesus Christ.  If you are interested in becoming a staff member, contact us.
