BACA Dedicated 24/7 365 To Helping Abused Children

By Tony

Sunday morning 9am I hear bikes rumbling in the driveway, smell the coffee and T-Rex yelling get up we’re going riding. Walk into the kitchen there’s Ditch, Squirt and Cindy waiting to go. We were going riding, but it is the third Sunday and they have a B.A.C.A meeting to go to. Now Ditch is a full patched member of Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.), on arrival at ALP 117 we are introduced to the Space Coast Chapter Prez KuanYu and V.P. Hippie (the one with the bad wing). The meeting starts at 10 for members and we were invited in around 11:00 for the open meeting after their major business was taken care of. We sat in for the second part of the meeting and this is a well-organized family, some joking going on but all business after that. B.A.C.A. stands against all forms of child abuse, physical, sexual and emotional. When they get a call to help no matter what time of day or night they will respond, and if that child calls…I’ll just say, look out they’re really coming. These men and women of B.A.C.A. are dedicated to what they do. It’s not a weekend thing and then go for lunch, it’s 24/7-365. B.A.C.A. exists as a body of bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. It’s a 501{c}3 non-profit organization and a lot of the money needed comes from the heart of these people or donations from the public. B.A.C.A. was founded over 20 years ago by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. He was aware “the system” does offer much to help abused children, but didn’t offer a way to help with their fear.  Children who feel safe and protected are more capable and likely to tell the truth regarding their abuse because threats made by an abuser are offset by the presence of dedicated protective bikers that have now become family…
