About Us

OUR HISTORY & MISSION

Sav-A-Life Bessemer, Inc. opened its doors in 1985 in downtown Bessemer.  We built our current center on property donated by North Highlands Baptist Church and moved into our new building in October 2014.  Sav-A-Life Bessemer, Inc. is a non-profit organization that operates with a board of directors, all volunteer, that are committed to serve and help.  Our funding comes through private donations and church support, no government funding. We have served thousands of men, women, children, and families through our services.

We are here to inform, support, and care for our clients and all counseling is based on biblical principles.  The reason we exist is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and assist those experiencing a crisis pregnancy.  All services are free of charge, and do not require any form of insurance or Medicaid.

We are associated with a national organization, Care-Net, and there are more than 1,200 Care-Net centers across the United States.  Care-Net provides us with medical and legal advice and training to equip us with accurate information to be presented in a professional manner.
