Allentown, PA, February 27, 2024 –(– Eastern PA Trans Equity Project is thrilled to announce that it has expanded its full suite of life-affirming services for transgender, nonbinary and gender-expansive people to eight new counties in Pennsylvania. With the addition of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, Juniata, Perry, Snyder, Union and York County the organization now provides services to 33 counties representing 55% of the State’s population.

“With our mission to empower transgender and gender-diverse Pennsylvanians, this expansion marks a significant milestone for EPTEP” said founder and Executive Director, Corinne Goodwin. “We are particularly grateful to the WellSpan Health Summit Endowment and the Leanne Freas Trout Foundation as well as other funders whose donations have enabled this expansion,” she continued.
