Thanks to a generous donation, Selma-Dallas County Sav-A-Life has a new building.

The family of the late Dr. Bracey Cross, who practiced dentistry in Selma for decades, donated their building to the nonprofit Wednesday.

Sav-A-Life provides emotional and spiritual assistance to those facing face pregnancy related issues, who are threatened by abortion or who have suffered harm from abortion.

The move will give Sav-A-Life more counseling rooms and additional space to perform ultrasounds, a new service the center has at its disposal. Jennifer Dobbs, executive director for Sav-A-Life, said she’d like to have a men’s ministry and now there will be space for that.

The help that Sav-A-Life provides families in our community is extremely valuable. Women, men and even children need a place to share their feelings and find out what their options are in the case of a crisis pregnancy. Sav-A-Life provides support to families in that situation.

The Cross family should be proud that a building that once was used to brighten smiles will continue to be used to help others.
