Safe at Home is a confidential address program administered by the California Secretary of State's office and is most effective when used as a part of an overall safety plan. Safe at Home offers victims of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault, human trafficking & elder and dependent abuse, as well as reproductive health care workers, a substitute mailing address to receive first class, certified, and registered mail. This address is also accepted by California state, county, and city government agencies in lieu of a residential or other mailing address where a victim can be tracked down, keeping the residence address confidential and out of the hands of someone who might want to harm the victim.

This program is provided free of charge to California residents who qualify as participants.

Since the program began in 1999, Safe at Home has helped protect thousands of victims and reproductive health care workers. Please take the time to explore the website to see if you or someone you know may benefit. Feel free to call our toll-free number at (877) 322-5227 if you have any questions about our services.
