Reaching those most in need by...


CHAG utilizes the skills of people who reflect the population we serve - in volunteer, staff and management positions. Indigenous staff are utilized in every program to insure that clients feel connected to the agency. This reduces the number of clients lost to services. If you feel you have the skills and experience to be part of our unique team, contact us to inquire about employment or volunteer opportunities.
