Safe at Home

Safe at Home

The Secretary of State’s Safe at Home program (also known as the Confidential Address Program) allows victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or similar types of crimes to receive mail using the Secretary of State’s address as a substitute for their own, while keeping their actual address confidential. The Secretary of State collects mail for Safe at Home participants from an undisclosed P.O. Box and then forwards the mail on to the participant’s actual, private address. When participants in the program enter into business relationships with state, city, and other agencies, the use of the fictitious address maintains that person’s confidentiality. It also relieves those agencies of the difficult and costly responsibilities of maintaining confidential records. In this way, Safe at Home participants are at a reduced risk from being tracked using public records. And though it’s important, this confidential program is only one step in a long-term, personal security strategy. Survivors of domestic violence can receive help in developing their personal security strategy and finding resources and ideas at a domestic violence program in their area.
