Being a Parent: Get the Facts

Life will always throw curveballs. Maybe you were planning to be a parent one day, but not today. Or maybe parenting was never a part of your plan. No matter where you are in life, it is possible and empowering to be a parent.

Parenting may seem simple, but like all decisions to make you have an unexpected pregnancy, the decision to parent is not an easy one to make. Just know that you are not alone. We are here for you, from the early steps of your parenting journey through the first years of your child’s life.

How We Help

First of all, any biological or legal parent is welcome at TryLife Center, starting at pregnancy! Whether you are married, in a relationship, single, or co-parenting, we have the resources you need to be a successful parent.

Our Program is Learn to Earn. That means we not only help you provide for your child through material assistance, but also with emotional and intellectual support that will help you become a skilled and confident parent. You earn points through participating in educational activities or peer counseling and are able to spend those points on the material items you need… all for free!


We offer education through video streaming, group classes, and one-on-one education sessions. You can choose what you want to learn about or ask us for recommendations. There are hundreds of topics to choose from, including:

  • Fetal and child development
  • Bonding with your baby
  • Infant safety (safe sleep, etc.)
  • Parenting and co-parenting
  • Budgeting and managing financial emergencies
  • Building healthy relationships
  • Addiction

Peer Counseling

Sometimes it helps to talk things through with someone who will listen without judgement. Through confidential peer counseling, we work to support you as you achieve your goals. We offer support in areas such as:

  • Pregnancy and options support
  • First time parenting
  • Crisis management
  • Family and relationships
  • Individual growth and goal setting
  • Marriage and couple’s support
  • Locating resources
  • Post-abortion support

Disclaimer: TryLife Center does not provide mental or behavioral health treatment, and peer counseling is not a substitute for mental or behavioral health treatment, counseling, or therapy. If you need mental or behavioral health treatment, we can refer you to a licensed professional.

Material Assistance

We provide ongoing material assistance to help you create a happy and healthy environment for your child. We have diapers, wipes, formula, clothes, furniture, car seats, toys and so much more in our store area. And through our Learn to Earn program, all it costs is your time!
