Fort Wayne Chinese Families and Friends Association (FWCFFA) is a non-profit organization with no political affiliations. Founded in 1982, the Association now consists of over 100 member families and some non-member families. The main purpose of the association is to maintain social contacts and to provide cultural and educational functions to the Chinese community. The majority of the members come from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, East and Southeast Asia. There are also many non-Chinese-origin members who adopted children from China and wish their children keep Chinese heritage and culture. Most of the members live in Indiana (mainly the greater Fort Wayne area); a few live in Ohio. The Association is administered by volunteers. The President is elected by members. Other Officers are appointed by the President.
