We are a collaborative, high-performing, regional network of organizations that provide social services to the marginalized communities spanning Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Fulton, Montgomery, and Saratoga counties. A community convener, Alliance brings together health providers of all kinds – medical, social, and behavioral – to cultivate sustainable, community-wide solutions that better health.
We assist (our community members + partners), we advise (where necessary), we augment (when invited to do so), we assess (to offer feedback about our shared progress), and we take accountability for the health of our community.
At the very foundation of our company is a shared belief that we exist only because we continue to foster real change for our community’s most vulnerable. Our hypothesis, which is part of a growing trend, is that by addressing social needs (access to healthy food, stable housing, job training, etc.) before they evolve into medical problems (routine – costly – trips to the emergency department for warmth during cold, winter months for the homeless population, etc.) will improve the overall health of our communities, while reducing medical costs for all.
The work we do is largely possible thanks to Healthy Together, Alliance’s free referral platform, used to connect thousands of community members in need to our growing network of organizations ready and willing to help. Healthy Together links health providers of all kinds (from regional hospitals to local food pantries and everyone in between), so that basic needs – not just medical ones – are met timely and with kindness.
