GLASGOW —

With a slight name change, Crossroads Life Center hopes to impress upon its seven-county community the center’s focus on life in all aspects, not just crisis pregnancy.

Eight years after opening its doors as Crossroads Pregnancy Center, Crossroads changed its official name to a life center. When called a pregnancy center, Crossroads Executive Director Bridget Kehrt-Groce said many community members did not realize that Crossroads’ programs encompassed a broad range of topics beyond crisis pregnancy.

“So many people think we just help girls until the baby is born, and that is not the case at all,” Kehrt-Groce said.

The name change to Crossroads Life Center is a better representation of what Crossroads is all about, according to Kehrt-Groce.

“Life kind of explains the core value of what we do,” Kehrt-Groce said. “...What we are really needs to say it.”
