Domestic Violence - Address Confidentiality
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.
