About Us

The Ithaca Health Alliance was founded in 1997.

Our mission is to facilitate access to health care for all, with a focus on the needs of the uninsured and underinsured.

Since our founding, we have used the contributions of our community to create a sustainable model of community-oriented, community-driven solutions to the ongoing healthcare crisis.

Our 3 Primary Programs are:
Ithaca Free Clinic
Ithaca Health Fund
Community Health Education

Through the Alliance’s three programs, we provide 100% free medical and holistic services for people with no health insurance or who cannot afford holistic care. We offer financial assistance for those who qualify, and we promote greater health literacy, prevention and self-care through events and resources.

We depend on a diverse volunteer team for all of our programs and our volunteer board. Visit the Volunteer Page to join us!
