At Light and Salt Services, we aim to care and provide services with compassion and knowledge to the needy and vulnerable, to promote healthy living, and to foster a sense of community responsibilities.

Light and Salt Services (LSS, also known as the Christian Servanthood Foundation) is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to unite the manpower and resources of the Austin Chinese community to serve local communities in need, both Chinese and non-Chinese alike. All the events of LSS are non-religious, non-political, and non-profit.


What We Do?
