  • About the Address Confidentiality Program

    The Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) is administered by the Office of the Victim Advocate (OVA) and provides an important service to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking.

    The program has two basic parts. First, the ACP provides a substitute address for victims who have moved to a new location unknown to their perpetrator. The second part of the program provides participants with a free first-class confidential mail forwarding service.

    The ACP is not for everyone . A victim service professional from a domestic violence, sexual assault or a victim service program can help determine if ACP is right for a victim as part of their safety plan.

    How to Apply

    Participants do not apply directly to the ACP. Application is made in person at a local domestic violence, sexual assault or victim service program located throughout the state.

    The application process involves meeting with a victim service professional who can help the participant determine whether ACP should be a part of the participant’s overall safety plan, explain the program services, explain the participant’s responsibilities and assist with the completion of the application materials.

    Employers and ACP

    Many businesses are discovering the health-related costs associated with rape, physical assault, stalking and homicide by intimate partners. In fact the American Institute on Domestic Violence has offered additional statistics.
