Alexandra House was established in 1977, when a group of concerned citizens formed the Anoka County Task Force for Battered Women. Within a year the Task Force established a 24-hour crisis line, with the first emergency shelter opening in 1980. As the needs of the community evolved, Alexandra House has expanded on its services – adding legal advocacy, therapy and support services, violence prevention programs, elder abuse resources, and community education and professional training.
