Alexandra House envisions a world where violence against women and children is unacceptable. Alexandra House has a wide variety of programs and services.

They provide hospital-based advocacy, where Alexandra House staff and volunteers are there for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence who present to local hospitals and designated Allina clinics. Advocates respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide support and advocacy services to victims in any treatment care unit within the hospitals as well as any designated areas of the clinics. Their Housing and Supportive Services program aims to assist families with long-term safety, stability and self-sufficiency with employment support and training, transportation, financial assistance, housing assistance and rental subsidies, system navigation, and everyday problem solving is only a fraction of the support our in-home advocates provide.
