Our Values

Faith: We are committed to sharing the love of Christ through faith in action by serving families in our community.

Family: We believe that families are the building blocks of society and strive to build thriving, healthy families through our programs.

Dignity: We celebrate the inherent and equal value of every human life, from conception to natural death. We are committed to fostering an environment where our clients, volunteers, funders, and staff are seen, heard, valued, respected, and especially loved.

Community: We believe that a community’s most precious asset is the health of its families. We seek to complement existing resources and collaborate with other agencies and partners in our community to benefit local families.

Quality: We provide better and brighter tomorrows for those we serve by continually evaluating and improving our programs. We use a data-driven approach and aim to deliver evidence-based information and services wherever possible.

Our History

Our organization, founded by Lois Weidner, began in 1997 as Tri-City Life Center, Inc. with a small office in New Kensington. We started by supporting young pregnant women who were facing unplanned pregnancies. Our staff helped them work through issues such as unsupportive partners, pressure from family members, and uncertainty about the future.

We later began doing business as TryLife Center as we expanded into our current building on Wildlife Lodge Road. We also expanded our reach, serving both moms and dads with children up to three years of age. In 2018, we added limited medical services.

In 2023, we decided to revitalize to better position the organization for a sustainable future. We restructured into a parent organization (FamilyLife Network, Inc.) with our programs separated out underneath the umbrella of the parent organization. This structure will not only allow for more autonomy within our programs, it will enable us to grow and add new programs in the future!

In an effort to direct more of our limited funds to our clients and their needs, we are phasing out mailing printed invitations to our events. Emailing our supporters costs us only 10% of printing/mailing expenses, which means our clients will benefit from an extra few thousand dollars a year that is directed into our programs.
