Christian Salvation Service is a registered non profit social service organization in Taiwan and a registered not-for-profit 501 c3 organization in the United States. CSS was established in 1983 and our goal is to continue to save and enrich lives. In so doing we strive to show the love of God to all we meet by both our work quality and our personal faith. We have developed an active child rescue program and children's shelter to assure the safety and proper care for children who for whatever reason are relinquished for adoption by their parent or who are wards of the government. CSS also provides respite care for infants in high risk family situations.
