Program Description:

The Stalking Resource Center (http://www.victimsofcrime.org/our-programs/stalking-resource-center) provides training, technical assistance, and information for professionals working with and responding to stalking victims and offenders. The mission of the Stalking Resource Center is to enhance the ability of professionals, organizations, and systems to effectively respond to stalking. The Stalking Resource Center envisions a future in which the criminal justice system and its many allied community partners will effectively collaborate and respond to stalking, improve victim safety and well-being, and hold offenders accountable.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Stalking Resource Center’s (SRC) mission is to raise national awareness of stalking and encourage the development and implementation of multidisciplinary responses to stalking in local communities across the country. As the only national training and technical assistance center focused solely on stalking, the SRC has provided training to tens of thousands of victim service providers and criminal justice professionals throughout the United States and has fostered innovations in programs for stalking victims and those practitioners who support them. Recent Publications and Resources: 2011: The Stalking Resource Center, in partnership with the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA), released the Model Campus Stalking Policy. This guide was developed to help universities and colleges create or revise their campus policy on stalking. The Model Campus Stalking Policy provides useful language about defining stalking, lists of stalking behaviors, and safety considerations for victims. It also includes sample policies that administrators can use in their entirety or adapt for schools' specific needs. 2010: The Stalking Resource Center, in partnership with the American Probation and Parole Association, released Responding to Stalking: A Guide for Community Corrections. This guide describes effective approaches to supervising stalkers, which include focusing on victim safety and insisting on offender accountability and behavior change. It encourages probation and parole officers to screen offenders for stalking behavior, document the incidents of stalking, and actively pursue all violations. 2009: The Stalking Resource Center launched www.StalkingAwarenessMonth.org. This online resource helps communities commemorate National Stalking Awareness every January. The site provides resources to help plan events and outreach on stalking in throughout the year and features an interactive quiz on stalking, magnets, fact sheets, guides, event ideas, and media tools to raise awareness about stalking and publicize events. 2009:  The Stalking Resource Center released How to Start and Facilitate a Support Group for Victims of Stalking. This is a guide for victim service providers, volunteers, and other concerned community members on how to initiate and run a stalking support group in their agency or community. The guide includes information about designing a support group for stalking victims, recommendations for group membership, tips for facilitators, a sample curriculum, and much more.

Program Description:

The National Crime Victim Bar Association is a program of the National Center for Victims of Crime. It was founded in April 1999, creating the nation's first professional association of attorneys and expert witnesses dedicated to helping victims seek justice through the civil system. The National Crime Victim Bar Association continues the pioneering work of Frank Carrington and is a testament to the National Center for Victims of Crime's long-standing commitment to civil justice for victims. Crime victims deserve compensation for the harms they have suffered, and third parties are increasingly held accountable through the civil justice system. The National Crime Victim Bar Association was established in response to the growing demand of victims seeking attorney referrals and attorneys seeking technical assistance in pursuing civil suits against perpetrators and negligent third parties. We encourage victims to consider a civil action. We educate attorneys to understand that crime victims are an untapped source of claims and that judgments can be won and collected in these cases. http://www.victimsofcrime.org/our-programs/national-crime-victim-bar-association/

Program Description:

National Center for Victims of Crime promotes public policies that improve our national response to victims of crime. The following issues constitute our policy priorities for the 2011. We continue to support other efforts with partners to promote justice and healing for victims of crime. Secure Resources for Victims of Crime: We are committed to increasing federal funding for victims, including funding under the Victims of Crime Act, the Violence Against Women Act. We also work to ensure that state funding sources for victim services are protected and will work with states to identify additional sources of funding for victims and victim service programs. Extend Rights & Resources to All Victims of Crime: All victims of crime should be treated with dignity and respect by the criminal justice system and have access to the services needed to rebuild their lives. We promote rights and services for victims of all crime, including victims of financial crime, victims with mental illness, immigrant victims, victims with disabilities, victims of crime on cruise ships, and other underserved victims of crime. Improve the Collection of Crime Victim Restitution: While victims of crime can seek orders of restitution from convicted offenders in every state, too often find that restitution is never collected. We promote the increased collection of crime victim restitution. Increase Safety for Crime Victims & Witnesses: We work to ensure that protective orders are available to intimidated witnesses and to all victims of crime who are harassed, stalked, or whose safety is threatened, and to ensure that those orders are enforced consistently. Expand Crime Victim Compensation: We support expansion of crime victim compensation programs to provide benefits to victims of financial crime; victims of crimes where violence is threatened; children and other witnesses to violence; intimidated witnesses; victims of school-based crime; and victims of hit-and-run offenses. We also promote the expansion of benefits to include payment for relocation and financial counseling. Protect Victim Access to Civil Justice: Across the country jurisdictions are enacting tort reform legislation, limiting the damage awards in civil cases. We work to ensure that such laws contain exceptions for crime victims, so that they retain the ability to recover from those whose actions have harmed them. We also work to protect victims from frivolous or harassing civil actions brought by perpetrators and extend statutes of limitation barring victims from pursuing justice. Improve our Response to Vulnerable Adult Victims: Vulnerable adults, including those who are elderly or have disabilities, are often targets of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation, yet remain largely unrecognized and underserved. We are committed to passing and strengthening laws to protect vulnerable adult victims of crime and to mobilizing the resources to help such victims recover.

Program Description:

Our DNA Resource Center is a source for training, technical assistance, and information about the use of DNA in the criminal justice system. It aims to help victim service and criminal justice professionals to understand forensic DNA and DNA databases, and the roles of sexual assault nurse examiners helping survivors of DNA exonerations, and how DNA can be used to find missing persons. The ultimate goal of this project is to ensure that victim service and allied professionals have accurate and up-to-date information about DNA so that they may provide informed and sensitive guidance to victims whose cases involve DNA evidence.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

National Center for Victims of Crime is the nation’s leading resource and advocacy organization for victims of all types of crime and for the people who serve them. We have played a critical role in shaping the national discussion on the impact of crime and what victims need in order to recover. We have enabled more people—elected officials, policy makers, business leaders, law enforcement officers, judges, media representatives, educators, healthcare providers—to understand that justice for victims involves more than holding offenders accountable for their crimes. It involves full participation in the criminal justice process and the means to overcome the physical, emotional, and financial consequences of crime. At National Center for Victims of Crime, we call this concept parallel justice. Simple fairness. Our work is far from finished. Crime touches about one in 12 Americans—and costs more than $1 trillion—each year. Some costs cannot be quantified: family breakups, academic failure, depression, substance abuse, delinquency, and increased crime follow in the wake of victimization. The social and monetary costs of victimization affect each one of us. It’s not someone else’s problem.
