Alexandra House (www.alexandrahouse.org)
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. First located in Fridley, the original shelter housed 12 women and children. In 1983 the shelter moved to a new site in Blaine that provided space for 17 residents. In 1994, having outgrown the second shelter, the organization built its current facility in Blaine, and can house up to 35 women at a time. Alexandra House has been able to add services over the years, adding legal advocacy, violence prevention programs, community education presentations and more. Donate by visiting our website link above. We accept financial contributions, volunteers and goods.
Meals On Wheels (www.anokachamplinmow.org)
On April 28, 2008, we were informed that the Meals Program for Northern Anoka County was planning on closing and the clients they serve would be without Meal Service. Our mission has long been to ensure a warm, nutritious meal and daily wellness check to those we serve. The idea of not stepping up to the plate wasn't something our staff and Board of Directors were willing to consider, so 43 working days later, Anoka-Champlin Meals on Wheels became the Meals on Wheels provider for over 380 square miles of territory. We now service 120 clients in 17 cities. Donate.
Youth 1st (http://youth1st.net)
Youth First Community of Promise is an organization that is both ground-breaking and rooted in proven youth developmental practices. Born in 1991 as Youth First, it was created by visionaries who were able to reach across governmental boundaries and form a collaboration to reduce risky behaviors in youth in the communities of Andover, Anoka and Ramsey. By becoming a "Site of Promise" Youth first has taken the pledge to actively engage not only their community youth, but the community itself in fulfilling 5 specific promises 1) Caring Adults; 2) Safe Places; 3) A healthy start and future; 4) An effective education and 5) Opportunities to give back. By ensuring that our community youth are given the opportunity to consistently experience these promises, Youth First and its supporting members are building a future where youth are more likely to succeed academically, socially and civically regardless of ethnic or economic backgrounds.
