Places that Help: Colorado
Included in this list are programs that can offer help/referrals to victims of abuse throughout the state. (If you find inaccurate contact information, please let us know.)
Colorado Address Confidentiality Program
The Colorado Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) is a statewide program that provides survivors of domestic violence, sexual offenses, and/or stalking with a legal substitute address for interacting with all state and local government agencies. The purpose of the ACP is to reduce the risk of future harm by providing participants with an alternative (but legal) address for creating public records. If used correctly, the substitute address, and not the actual address, will show up in public records. When the participant uses their substitute address, any mail with that address arrives at the ACP. The program repackages the mail and forwards it to the survivor’s actual or mailing address. To be eligible for ACP enrollment, a person must be a survivor of domestic violence, stalking or sexual assault who fears for his or her safety. The applicant must have evidence of the victimization, but a court order or police report are not required. The applicant must have either relocated within the past 90 days or be planning to relocate.
