The Safe at Home Program became law on August 28, 2007, as an act of the First Regular Session of the 94th General Assembly. It is codified in Sections 589.660 – 589.683 RSMo. and the rules can be found in 15 CSR 30-70.
The goal of the Safe at Home program is to help survivors of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, or stalking, who have relocated or are about to relocate, in their effort to keep their assailants from finding them.The Safe at Home program provides for a designated address to use when creating new records with state and local agencies and the courts and acts as a mail forwarding service. These services limit an assailant’s ability to access public information that could identify the new location of a victim who is in the program. Safe at Home is not a witness protection program; rather it is a mail forwarding service.
