2009… Expanding the Mission At the request of then Anoka County Attorney, Robert M.A. Johnson, and with the approval of the organization’s Board of Directors, Alexandra House expanded its mission in October 2009 to provide services to victims of sexual violence. Alexandra House provided on-site follow-up and services to victims of sexual assault who sought care at Mercy and Unity Hospital’s emergency departments. Alexandra House staff provided immediate support to victims during sexual assault evidentiary exams and services that included safety planning, help in accessing shelter, assistance in reporting to law enforcement, and referrals. Dating, domestic, and sexual violence are often intertwined, and by expanding its mission, Alexandra House was better able to effectively provide services to victims of domestic and sexual violence in Anoka County.
