S.H.A.R.E was originally started by founder Tiffany Barnes while in high school at the age of 16 years old.
After escaping abuse and being legally emancipated from her parents at age 15, Tiffany decided it was time for her to help others take a stand against abuse like she had.
S.H.A.R.E. originally started as a support group in her local high school.
Tiffany became passionate in helping her peers to realize they weren’t alone in their suffering.
At the time S.H.A.R.E stood for Students Helping the Abused React and Empower.
The quaint group of less than 10 kids gathered after school to do their homework together, encourage each other, be a listening ear in times of need, or simply a shoulder to cry on.
The purpose of the support group was to create a space where Tiffany’s peers could feel safe, supported and most importantly empowered.
10 years later that little support group of less than 10 kids gained so much momentum it became a 501(c)3 non-profit. Now supporting men, women and children across the state of Utah.
S.H.A.R.E. Now stands for Sharing Hope for the Abused through Resilience and Empowerment.
S.H.A.R.E assists abuse survivors in learning how to become resilient and empowered therefore reversing the cycle of abuse.
