Childhood abuse and neglect is a serious problem in the United States. Each year over three million children are reported abused and/or neglected. Research has shown that a range of psychiatric symptoms and disorders in childhood and adulthood are associated with early trauma, depression, post- traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder, and much more.
However, Bikers Against Child Abuse International (BACA) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. BACA members truly go above and beyond in order to make children more comfortable and feel supported as they deal with the terrible situation they have endured — which often includes sexual and physical abuse.
Bikers Against Child Abuse International do everything from picking kids up from the bus to escorting them to and from school or therapy sessions. BACA members will even attend courtroom cases in which child victims must testify against their abusers.
Childhood abuse and neglect is a major public health problem that dramatically affects the quality of life of many individuals. However, from the support given by BACA members, these children no longer feel frightened or intimidated but much more secure knowing they have a strong and powerful group of friends on their side.
