Care nurtures the human spirit as well as the human body…




Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead

Since 1985, Visiting Nurse Service of Ithaca and Tompkins County has operated as a private, not-for-profit home health care agency governed by a voluntary Board of Directors.  The Board is made up of representatives from various segments of the community and is responsible for setting policy and appointing the agency’s Executive Director. Terms of service are for 3-years with the ability to stay on for a second term.  Officer positions: President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary may be filled by a member after serving 1-year on the Board.
