Community or Constituency Served Alexandra House supports everyone who is affected by domestic and sexual violence and abuse in later life. We are a resource for victims and survivors of sexual violence in any form. We also offer support to friends and family of victim/survivors and other concerned persons. While we work with victims throughout the metro area and state, a majority of clients reside in Anoka County – 70% in 2014. Anoka County encompasses 423 square miles and is part of the seven county metro area surrounding Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. It is a mix of rural, suburban, and urban communities and has a population of 341,864 according to the 2014 Census Bureau Estimate. Anoka County is changing demographically. 16.6% of Anoka County residents report being persons of either non-white or Hispanic or Latino origin, an annually increasing figure. There is also a significant immigrant population in the southern portion of Anoka County. 6.7% of Anoka County residents are foreign born and 10.4% report a language other than English in their home. 30.6% of residents are age 50 and older. Clients served in 2014 spanned a variety of age categories—21% age birth to 12; 24% age 13-18; 47% age 25-55; and 2% age 55 and over. Likewise, clients served represented a variety of ethnic/race categories—17% African American; 10% Hispanic/Latino; 2% Asian/Pacific Islander; 3% American Indian; 10% Multi-Racial; 53% Caucasian; and 5.5% Other/Immigrant/Unknown. Domestic and sexual violence impacts every socio-economic background. However, families living in poverty face many more barriers in escaping the relationship. In 2014, 73% of all clients reported an income that fell below 100% the federal poverty guidelines and 87% reported an income that fell below 200% the federal poverty guidelines. To accomplish our mission we focus our programming in four areas – prevention, intervention, follow up, and system’s change, community education and professional training.

We are well-respected and supported by our community, have well established partnerships that have been in place for decades, employ communications and outreach strategies that make our services well-known in the community, are committed to victim-centered, trauma informed services, and we have the capacity, infrastructure, and proven track record to be successful.
