SHARE informs victims of their right to free confidential screening and counseling. It encourages victims to share their story with their health care provider in order to obtain referrals and address any related health issues. SHARE reinforces that the victim is not responsible for the abuse and that there is support for her/him and her/his children. SHARE provides the victim with the NYS Domestic and Sexual Violence Hotline and fits in the back of a phone case for safety purposes.
