Planned Parenthood health centers across America are offering hormone treatments for transgender people.

The national organisation known for providing birth control and other sexual health services is offering the transition treatment at 32 clinics.

According to their website, Planned Parenthood health centers are 'open to people of all gender identities and sexual orientations.

'Whether you're transgender or cisgender, you can visit your local Planned Parenthood health center for STD testing, birth control, physical exams, other sexual and reproductive health services, and referrals.'

The centers that make the service available are in 10 states, California, Colorado, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, Vermont and Washington – offer the hormone treatments. 
Also the New Haven office of Planned Parenthood offers CSH therapy and has been for over ten years, the New Haven office was the pilot program for the program. The one drawback for New Haven is that there is a waiting period to see the endo nurse due to its popularity and the nurse also wants a referral from a therapist or other healthcare provider.

I believe that they do offer hormones on a sliding scale based on your ability to pay.
