If you are in immediate danger, please contact your local authorities. Enrolling in an ACP is only one part of a survivor's comprehensive safety plan. If you are in need of resources, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-7233 or visit their website.
Millions of Americans experience intimate partner violence (IPV) every year. An ongoing concern that many IPV survivors have is that their abuser might be able to find them through public records, such as voter registration, and continue abuse. Several states have implemented address confidentiality programs (ACPs, also known as Safe at Home programs) to shield the public records of survivors of IPV and other crimes from being accessed by their abusers.
On this website, we detail state programs to help both survivors understand programs and program directors and advocates learn from other states to improve their own. This information is current as of summer 2022 and is provided for informational purposes only. We recommend always checking with state offices for official information and following state procedures.
