Bikers Against Child Abuse, Inc. (B.A.C.A.) is a non-profit, 501-C-3 tax exempt organization that exists to provide aid, comfort, safety, and support for children that have been sexually, physically, and emotionally abused. They are dedicated to the principle that one of the basic rights of childhood is to be safe and protected, and when the child’s family or environment have failed them, They stand ready to provide it to them.
B.A.C.A. is a strong organization of dedicated individuals who are willing to sacrifice any and all in order to protect and secure a child’s basic right to a happy childhood.
B.A.C.A. is funded by donations from the public. Some donations come from corporations, other charitable organizations such as Rotary Clubs, Lions, Eagles, Shriners, popular rock bands, celebrities, private business owners, and other motorcycle clubs and organizations. Many B.A.C.A. Members have made personal sacrifices, using their own funds to help the support the Mission.
When they visit a child they may also use our financial resources to provide him or her with B.A.C.A. mementos such as a vest, patches, pins, a stuffed B.A.C.A. bear or monkey, a blanket, and toys to give the child a sense of security and belonging. The vest has a small patch on the back that identifies the child as part of our B.A.C.A. family.
B.A.C.A. also finances a therapy assistance fund to support children’s therapy when they are left without resources. B.A.C.A. contracts with licensed therapists known for their expertise in working with children and pays them a discounted rate for their services. The therapy assistance fund is also used to help finance activities that will help empower the child to feel more secure in their environment. Examples are karate lessons, cheerleader camp etc. No one in B.A.C.A. is ever compensated for their efforts in B.A.C.A.. 100% of all monies donated to B.A.C.A. goes to support the Mission.
