Address Confidentiality Program

The Address Confidentiality Program helps victims keep abusers from discovering their new address. We help protect survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking.  More than 990 people currently participate in the program.

Keeping Your New Address Confidential

If you move to escape abuse, you can join the Address Confidentiality Program and have your first-class mail sent to a substitute address chosen by the Attorney General’s office. We forward your mail to you and keep your new address secret.

You can also use the substitute address to register to vote, get a driver license, or sign up for utilities like water and electricity.

How To Sign Up

If you are a survivor of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking, talk to an application assistant at a domestic violence or sexual assault center. To be eligible for the program, you must move or be in the process of moving to a new address and sign a statement that you fear for your safety or the safety of your children.
