The Health Equity Alliance of Long Island’s Innovation

Our Mission

The mission of the Health Equity Alliance of Long Island (HEALI) is to engage health and human service agencies, community members and other stakeholders to ensure equitable health and life outcomes for all Long Islanders through cross-sector partnerships, innovative funding strategies and improvements in the health & human service delivery system. We will use our collective power to influence public policy and investment decisions by funders.

Our Vision

HEALI’s vision is to build and provide an integrated, holistic, culturally and linguistically responsive health and human service delivery system that results in equitable health and life outcomes for all Long Islanders.

Our Goals

  • Develop an IT infrastructure that allows for multi-directional data sharing among agencies, while respecting clients’ rights and protecting their privacy.
  • Improve connectivity between agencies as they screen clients and track referrals within the sector.
  • Engage community members, being inclusive and using a culturally and linguistically competent lens.
  • Use our collective power and unified voice to advocate for services and investments needed for Long Island’s diverse communities.
  • Develop strategies that simultaneously prepare CBOs for change, convey value and highlight our leadership and expertise to collectively impact a transforming healthcare system.
