Helping Families Succeed

TryLife Center is a faith-based, life-affirming, pregnancy and family resource center. Our team is dedicated to promoting the life of the unborn child, and the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of their parents and families. Through confidential counseling, education, and material support, families succeed.

Humble Beginnings

TryLife Center began in 1997 as Tri-City Life Center in a small, second floor office in New Kensington, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. From the start we were dedicated to promoting the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of young pregnant women facing serious issues that arose from an unplanned pregnancy. These issues included unsupportive fathers, pressures from family members and friends, financial insecurity and poverty, and uncertainty about the ability to parent. Also offered were provided positive alternatives to those considering abortion.

We updated our name from Tri-City Life Center to TryLife Center to better reflect our life-affirming mission. Our geographic service area now includes Lower and Upper Burrell, New Kensington, Arnold, Apollo, Vandergrift, Leechburg, Tarentum, Freeport, and other areas of the Alle-Kiski Valley, as well as Butler, Armstrong, and Allegheny Counties.

Serving Greater Need

Over the years, TryLife’s programs have become more comprehensive. We now offer counseling and support during each phase of pregnancy up through the first two years of the child’s life, plus services and education for the father. Early on, TryLife helped approximately 50 mothers per year but now provide more than 250 mothers and fathers with thousands of client visits annually.

We offer tools to help young mothers and fathers become positive parents, make well-considered, informed, and healthy choices, and become educated, self-sufficient members of the community. Our team believes that building stronger, healthier families builds a stronger, healthier community for all.

In spring 2018, TryLife Center received its fourth accreditation, presented by the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations (PANO). This Seal of Excellence is awarded to well-managed and responsibly governed non-profit organizations.
