Charting the Course


Alexandra House added Therapy Services.

A grant from the Greater Twin Cities United Way allowed Alexandra House to expand the Follow Up Program and offer short-term rental subsidies to assist survivors to secure and maintain safe, affordable housing.

2012… Therapy and Support Services Program

Nearly 35% of all victim/survivors served by Alexandra House reported having some form of mental health issue or diagnosis. Advocates worked diligently to find appropriate and accessible therapy resources for their clients within Anoka County, but realized there was a lack of affordable services that specialized in trauma related to sexual and domestic violence. To meet this need, Alexandra House implemented the Therapy and Support Services Program. Alexandra House hired a licensed therapist who offered individual and family therapy and mental health assessment services for children, adolescents, and adults free-of-charge. Services were targeted to those who did not have insurance, could not afford copays, or faced other barriers to accessing services in their community.
