Alliance Community Healthcare was founded in 1963 by two African American women, an attorney and a handful of volunteers who agreed that the women and families of Jersey City needed access to safe, legal birth control. The clinic they founded operated on Saturday mornings in an Episcopal parish house. It was run by volunteer physicians and a team of dedicated community members manning the phones.
Today we deliver comprehensive healthcare services to more than 19,000 patients and handle more than 58,000 outpatient visits annually. From two Jersey City locations, we offer primary care, women’s health, family care, dental services, pediatrics, and more. We also function as a referral agency for the diverse range of social, educational, nutrition and mental health concerns that impact our patients’ health.
