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 a substitute mailing address to receive first class, certified, and registered mail for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking, and elder or dependent abuse, as well as reproductive health care workers and public entity employees who are in fear for their safety. 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.

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. If you have any questions about our services, feel free to contact us directly.
