Founder and CEO of Center of Life
Life-long Pittsburgh resident Center of Life’s CEO, Tim Smith, is affectionately known as “PT” (short for Pastor Tim). Smith founded Center of Life in an official capacity in 2001, though his roots in Hazelwood run deep and he’s worked and volunteered in the community since the 1980s. His passion for connecting with kids and families led him to create Center of Life as a nonprofit and community empowerment organization.
PT brings a wealth of knowledge, compassion, and creativity from his education from Westinghouse High School, the University of Pittsburgh, and the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary and his professional experiences as an investment banker and National Youth Network Coordinator.
