Heartland Alliance advocates for accessible, quality health care for all.  We lift up effective approaches to serving vulnerable populations, including those experiencing homelessness, people living with addiction or mental illness, immigrants and refugees as well as other marginalized or underserved communities. Our policy and advocacy work is based on our extensive experience providing health services to vulnerable populations via community health centers and school-based clinics as well as community-based outreach, treatment and prevention programs.

Our Health Care Priorities:

  • Protect and expand the gains realized by the Affordable Care Act
  • Improve the Medicaid and managed care systems in Illinois
  • Ensure affordable access to needed health care and behavioral health care services for all who need them – regardless of their ability to pay
  • Promote evidenced-based approaches to health care interventions such as harm reduction and trauma informed care
  • Address social determinants of health such as housing and food security
