RESTORE is a nonprofit, sexual assault crisis intervention program affiliated with Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York. RESTORE provides sexual assault survivors and their loved ones with a variety of resources, including a 24-hour crisis hotline, in-person accompaniment to hospital visits, accompaniment on visits with law enforcement personnel or to trial dates, short-term counseling, counseling on school conduct options for college and university students protected under Title IX, and advocacy and outreach activities.
After any encounter with a client, volunteer advocates must file an intake form to record the visit and provide staff with crucial information to follow up appropriately. Recently, RESTORE upgraded to a new volunteer portal that allows advocates to find paperwork and resources, but no system currently exists for advocates to electronically track their encounters or submit their intake forms.
The RESTORE application was designed as an advocate-facing application that allows advocates and staff to collect information at a hospital visit in real time, with best design practices and user input taken into account in the design process.
