Bikers Against Child Abuse

Bikers Against Child Abuse

Bikers Against Child Abuse, Inc. (B.A.C.A.) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live.

The parents or guardians of victims of abuse are the ones who first contact BACA. The club then confirms that the authorities have been contacted before meeting with the family in order to see what the situation is and if it is something they can get involved with. They do not get in between domestic issues.

Referrals from outside established agencies are reviewed by the system before the BACA responds with any type of contact.

The group claims that it asks child to adopt them, aiming to develop an extended ‘family’ with the child.

After contact is established, two bikers — one male, and one female — who may or may not live near to the child, act as primary contacts for the child and their family. The two bikers then visit the family in the two months after first contact on an ongoing basis and notify the BACA child liaison of any specific needs the child might have. The members may also attend court proceedings for the children or escort them to school or errands.

BACA claims Child Protective Services, therapists, clergy, and other organizations may contact BACA if they know of a child who could use BACA’s support. BACA members may only escort children to court only if the judge permits it
