Shoals Sav-A-Life, Inc (SSAL), was formed in 1994 as a 501c3 nonprofit organization by several members of the Shoals community who wanted to ensure that residents in our area were educated about the unique value of every individual life created in the image of God. They worked together to bring the pregnancy resource center into being so that women and families facing an unplanned pregnancy would have somewhere to turn for help and education and to hear the message that every life is sacred and designed by God with a purpose and a plan in mind. Their goal was to provide factual and accurate information to individuals who would be making life-impacting decisions regarding pregnancy, prenatal development, adoption, post-abortion care, and the risks associated with practicing sexually promiscuous behavior. Along with information, they also wanted to stress the spiritual implications of these issues as well, and to provide guidance, hope, and resources that would reveal the love of Christ to people struggling with these issues. Shoals Sav-A-Life has always sought to invest in our community by providing a hand-up to those in need. Through the help of individual donors and local businesses that choose to partner with our work by making a tax-deductible contribution, our services are provided free of charge to clients of any age, ethnicity, religion, or sexual preference as we encourage them to invest their time in learning the skills taught through peer counselors and to apply the knowledge and resources provided to build a better life for their child and themselves so that they can become all that God created them to be.
