Address confidentiality program for Wis. abuse victims opening
MADISON, Wis. — A new state program designed to protect the addresses of abuse victims in Wisconsin is beginning.
The Safe at Home program opens on Saturday. Advocates and a bipartisan group of supporters of the program including Attorney General Brad Schimel announced the launch of the program at a news conference Thursday.
Safe at Home provides victims of domestic abuse, child abuse, sexual abuse, stalking, and trafficking with a legal substitute address and free mail forwarding service. The program gives those enrolled a confidential home, work or school address.
Schimel and other backers say the program helps those living in fear by giving them a safe and secure address to prevent those who may do them harm from tracking them down.
