Protecting Addresses for Victims
The Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) is a free mail forwarding service. It helps survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or human trafficking shield their physical address.
Program participants are provided with a substitute address to use instead of their real address. Participants may use the substitute address for:
- the delivery of first class, certified and registered mail.
- obtaining an Oregon driver’s license or ID card.
- receiving or paying child support.
- applying for a marriage license.
- enrolling dependents in public school.
Participation in the ACP by itself does not guarantee anyone’s safety. ACP staff do not provide threat-assessment or safety-planning and are not allowed to offer legal advice.
Apply With a Certified Application Assistant
To apply to the Address Confidentiality Program, you must work with a victim advocate who has been designated as an Application Assistant by the Attorney General. Find an Application Assistant near you.
Advocates who are interested in becoming a Certified Application Assistant (AA) need to complete the following steps:
- Register for iLearn. Instructions can be found here.
- Log in to iLearn and complete the online course “DOJ-CVSSD-Introduction to the Address Confidentiality Program”.
- Fill out the AA Agreement here.
- Send the AA Agreement along with the certificate received upon completion of the ACP course to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To stay active as an Application Assistant, advocates need to renew their certification every two years. This includes re-taking the online course, filling out the AA Agreement and emailing it with the certificate received to email@example.com.
