  Safe At Home    
  Confidential Address Program  
     
  The Confidential Address Program is administered by the office of the Secretary of State, Debra Bowen. It is a no cost mail forwarding service designed to help victims of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault who have recently moved or plan to move to a safe place unknown to their abusers.

Safe At Home participants can use a free P.O. Box instead of their home address to help them maintain their privacy when receiving first-class mail, opening a bank account, completing a confidential name change, filling out government documents, registering to vote, getting a driverís license, enrolling a child in school, and more. Since 1999, Safe at Home has helped to protect more than 6,000 survivors of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault, as well as reproductive health care doctors, nurses, volunteers, and patients.

The staff at the Victim/Witness Assistance Center has been trained to assist victims of domestic violence in the enrollment process. Any interested victim of domestic violence is encouraged to contact the Victim/Witness Assistance Division at (559) 636-5471 for further information. Additional information about the program can be found on the California Secretary of State's website: www.sos.ca.gov/safeathome
