' as of january first, abuse survivors living in iowa can keep their home address confidential. that means things
bills, and even voter registration can use a substitute address. the shelter manager from winnie's place, ananmergency shelter for homeless and abused women, says the program makes it more difficult for an abuser to find a victim. (kit miller/shelter manager) "they have a little bit...one more step of protection, that will take, um, somebody a little more work to find where they're at." mail sent to the substitute address gets forwarded by the secretary of state's office to the confidential address of the survivor.

(kit miller/shelter manager) "somebody's sister
and knows or sees that id can very easily let the abuser know." one domestic and sexual abusese survivor says the program will m me a big difference forothers like her. (abuse survivor) "a lot of things are public record these days, and even though you try and hide whe you're at and your identity you do what you can, if they really want to they can find where you're at. and this law stops that." not only does 'safe at home' keep survivors safe, it helps them feel at ho too. (kit miller/shelter manager) "home is supposed to be your refuge, and so you need to feel like you have a safety net there and you have some comfort, and you have the ability to relax after all feeling safe, comfortable and relaxed is what being home is all about. sarah greene local 4 news.' deborah iowa is one of 33 states with an address confidentiality program. deborah: hillary clinton has hit a majojo milestone in h h campaiai... the democratic presidential candidate has raised 55-million dollars in the fourth quarter--topping her 100-million- dollar goal. in all... the clinton campai collected 112 million dollars since launching her campaign in april. the democratic front-runner made a strong push to raise funds....she has headlined around 174 fundraisers.
