The c/o in an address means "care of." "Care of" refers to the individual who is the primary resident of an address. Use a c/o line in an address when an individual is living with someone else and it is not that individual's main residence, or he wishes to receive mail at an alternate address that is not his own. The c/o line is added to ensure the post office knows that the letter is addressed correctly.
