Confidential Address For Use In Court

Posted By Castellanos & Associates, APLC || 31-May-2018

The Safe at Home program provides victims of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault and human trafficking (effective January 1, 2018), as well as reproductive health care workers a way to thwart abusers from finding them at home, at work and at school. Safe at Home participants are assigned a substitute mailing address. This address is accepted by California state, county and city government agencies in lieu of a residential or other mailing address where the victim can be personally tracked down, keeping the residence address confidential and out of the hands of their abusers.

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