Adams Announces New Safe at Home Explainer Video

FRANKFORT, KY (October 2, 2023) – Secretary of State Michael Adams announced the number of participants in the Kentucky Safe at Home program has doubled since the bolstered address confidentiality program for domestic abuse survivors went into effect in June.

“We are helping more survivors of abuse in the Commonwealth feel safe in their homes,” said Adams. “Let’s take this Domestic Violence Awareness Month to promote the resources we have made available to support vulnerable Kentuckians.”

Adams released a video, on sos.ky.gov and social media, to explain the Safe at Home program and its eligibility requirements.

A Criminal Justice Domestic Violence publication found that more than 38,000 reports of suspected domestic violence were filed in 2022. The Kentucky State Police served over 16,000 emergency protective orders last year.

The Safe at Home program allows participants to be enrolled without an emergency protective order. The program allows participants to mask their address on all state and local public records, receive mail forwarding, and register to vote while maintaining a hidden address.
