7.21 Verification - Safe At Home Program

ISSUE DATE: 10/2017

Safe at Home (SAH) is designed to help people who fear for their safety maintain a confidential address. When someone enrolls in Safe at Home, they are assigned a PO Box address they can use as their legal address. The participant’s real address remains under security with the Safe at Home office and the program provides a mail forwarding service.

CCAP applicants and participants are considered participants in the Safe At Home (SAH) program when they:

  • · provide the CCAP agency with a Safe At Home Identification Card, OR
  • · provide the CCAP agency with their unique lot number with PO Box 17370 assigned to them by the Secretary of State’s office, OR
  • · declare they are Safe At Home participants, either verbally or in writing. If a CCAP agency receives verbal declaration, document the statement in Case Notes.
  • SAH participants are not required to provide the CCAP agency with a Safe at Home Identification card.

    SAH participants only need to tell the CCAP agency the county where they actually live.

    Case information for SAH participants must be protected as PRIVILEGED in MEC². See “Safe at Home (SAH) Address” in the MEC² User Manual.

    Because there may be a delay in the mail forwarding process, public assistance program notices may not be received by the participants when anticipated and the ability of the participant to respond timely will be affected. CCAPworkers will need to make exceptions in these situations.

    For more information about the Safe At Home Program, call 651-201-1399 or 1-866-723-3035 or TTY 1-800-627-3529 or 711.
