Address Confidentiality Program is administered by the North Carolina Attorney General's Office. ACP provides relocated victims of domestic violence, sexual offence, stalking or human trafficking with a substitute address to use in place of their actual address.The goal of ACP is to prevent an assailant or potential assailant from finding the location of a victim through the state's public records.
Safety Planning allows for victims to meet with an advocate who can assist in co-constructing a safety plan. A safety plan is a personalized and practical plan that can help victims be better prepared to handle or avoid dangerous situations and to know the best way to reach when in dangerous situation.
Law Enforcement Advocacy is provided when a victim has a meeting or interview with local law enforcement. An advocate will accompany the victim and support all IPV or SA concerns during the legal process.
