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.


Notice of Holiday Closings: The Ithaca Health Alliance offices and Free Clinic will be CLOSED Thursday December 25, 2014 and Thursday January 1, 2015.

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. Today, we have three primary programs: the Ithaca Free Clinic, the Ithaca Health Fund, and Community Health Education.

We depend on a diverse volunteer team for all of our programs and our volunteer board. We have a simple application if you'd like to join us.

Ithaca Free Clinic
The Health Alliance opened a free health Clinic in downtown Ithaca on January 23, 2006. The Ithaca Free Clinic (IFC) provides 100% free healthcare services to the un- and under-insured residents of Tompkins County and the surrounding region. IFC is a medically integrated facility where volunteer health professionals provide both conventional and holistic medical services to clinic visitors as well as health insurance counseling and other services.
    At IFC, anyone may receive free healthcare services for which they otherwise have no insurance coverage. Medical visits are available on a walk-in basis, with no appointment required. Complementary care is available by appointment with our holistic providers. The Ithaca Free Clinic is open on Mondays 2-6 p.m. and Thursdays 4-8 p.m., with therapeutic services available by appointment on Tuesdays. We are located at 521 West Seneca Street in Ithaca, NY.


Ithaca Health Fund
The Ithaca Health Fund provides financial assistance in meeting the costs of health care. Through the Fund, IHA provides grants that can help with specific categories of preventive and emergency healthcare expenses. Through the IHA Community Grants program, small grants are offered to other groups doing health-related work. Ithaca Health Fund financial advocates can help people with medical expenses that they cannot afford access various programs.
    Fund grants are available to New York residents from Tompkins County and its neighboring counties with demonstrable financial need. If you would like to donate to support health grants please click here.


Community Health Education
The Alliance offers free educational programming for the general public. Informal classes, lectures, and guest speakers are offered throughout the year. We network with experts in all fields of health to help our neighbors learn about the wealth of health options available. Our newsletter provides information about different health subjects and other educational resources in addition to news of the organization. Look for our green Health Education Tents at Ithaca's festivals and events, and stop by!
