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.

Join us Sunday July 27th for a fabulous dinner, dancing, and music by Little Joe and the Big Shots at the 2nd Annual Just Be Cause Party at Agava Restaurant, with proceeds to benefit the Ithaca Health Alliance's Free Clinic. The event is from 5 to 9 p.m. and you can buy tickets online at, at Agava Restaurant, or at CSP Management (407 W. Seneca St., Ithaca).

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 Ithaca Health Alliance Educational Programs.

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.
    Fund grants are available to New York residents with demonstrable financial need. Preference is given to Tompkins County residents. This program is currently being restructured. If you would like to donate to support health grants please click here.

Educational Programs
The Alliance offers free educational programming for the general public. Informal classes, lectures, and guest speakers are offered throughout the year. We offer resources in the waiting area of our offices at the Free Clinic, which everyone is welcome to browse through. 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.
