Welcome to the Stalking Resource Center

The mission of the Stalking Resource Center is to enhance the ability of professionals, organizations, and systems to effectively respond to stalking.



  • Responding to Stalking: A Guide for Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Programs
    The Stalking Resource Center, in partnership with Inspire Action for Social Change, and the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women, is excited to provide a new resource for supervised visitation and safe exchange programs. 

    Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange programs are critical to enhancing safety for children and adult victims by increasing opportunities for supervised visitation and safe exchange, by and between custodial and non-custodial parents, in cases involving domestic violence, dating violence, child abuse, sexual assault, or stalking. Stalking poses a particular challenge for victims, as it can occur before, during, and after a visit or exchange. It is essential that supervised visitation and safe exchange program staff are able to effectively recognize and respond to stalking. 

    This guide includes an overview of the dynamics of stalking, the intersection of stalking and domestic violence, how to assess for stalking, and considerations for policy and procedure. To download the guide, please click here.
