Mission

The mission of Alexandra House is to empower victims of domestic and sexual violence, and inspire social change, through education, support, and advocacy.

Vision

Alexandra House envisions a world where violence against women and children is unacceptable.

We Believe:

  • Domestic and sexual violence are part of an historical pattern of violence and oppression that disproportionately impacts women and children.
  • Domestic and sexual violence affect those of all classes, genders, ethnicities, faith communities, races, sexual orientations, ages, and different abilities.
  • Domestic violence is not limited to physical abuse; it includes emotional, financial, sexual, spiritual, and psychological abuse. It is about power and control over others.
  • Domestic and sexual violence are crimes and violations of human rights.
  • Prostitution is a form of violence against women and children.
  • Domestic violence is a direct link to other forms of violence and social problems.
  • Violence is a learned behavior and a choice.
  • Domestic and sexual violence are community problems. Our success is directly connected to working with members of the community in ending domestic and sexual violence.
