Domestic Violence: Address Confidentiality Program

The Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) is a confidential mail-forwarding service for domestic violence victims who have recently relocated to a location unknown to their abuser.  The goal of the ACP is to help domestic violence victims keep their new address confidential. 

The ACP provides cost-free mail forwarding service.  Program participants are authorized to use a “substitute” mailing address in lieu of a home address.

The actual address of a program participant is confidential and available only to those employees involved in the operation of the Address Confidentiality Program and to law-enforcement officers for law-enforcement purposes.

The ACP is not retroactive and cannot provide absolute protection.  The ACP is only one piece of a victim’s overall safety plan.  Each ACP participant should seek counseling through a crisis center and shelter services for an overall safety plan.
