“Not only did they save my son’s life, I feel like in a way they also saved my life.” – “Donna”

Sav-A-Life Shelby’s mission is to develop a culture of life where abortion is unnecessary and undesirable in Shelby County, Alabama while offering the hope of the gospel. We hope to see every person who engages with the Pregnancy Resource Center of Pelham, AL chooses life for themselves and their unborn child.


In 1984, God burdened the heart of Jenny Doss to reach women dealing with crisis pregnancies by starting a center in Shelby County, Alabama. Since the opening of its doors in 1985, thousands of lives have been saved. In the words of TIME Magazine, pregnancy centers are the “kind, calm, nonjudgmental” face of the pro-life movement.

The Pregnancy Resource Center in Pelham, AL of Sav-A-Life offers help and hope through compassionate care and support.  The Center provides Free and confidential pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, abortion information, parenting classes, and material assistance are just some of the many services offered to empower women and men to make a life-affirming decision.
