Secretary of State Kander Marks Anniversary of Safe at Home
JEFFERSON CITY - Today marked the sixth anniversary of Safe at Home.
Safe at Home is an address confidentially program for survivors of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and stalking. The program gives victims a substitute address when they create new public records. These substitute addresses allows survivors to keep their location away from publicly accessible information. Since 2007 the program has served 1,884 Missourians and currently protects the addresses of 974.
"Over the last six years, Safe at Home has played a tremendous role in supporting Missouri crime victims as they move forward with their lives," Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander said. "The large impact it has had is a testament both to its importance and the tireless dedication of the program staff."
Over 350 Application Assistants are located throughout the state to help potential participants join the program.
