BACA empowers children who have been abused by way of “Level 1 interventions,” “Level 2 interventions” and court support (we can escort them to court to testify against their perpetrators.) Level 1 intervention consists of all available members in the area riding to the child’s house and presenting them with a patch, stickers, and taking a photograph so they feel empowered by the full support of our group. Level 2 interventions involve a group of BACA members who create a presence at the home of the child, being visible at times when the family might be the most vulnerable. The purpose of B.A.C.A.’s presence is to deter further abuse and to protect the children and the family, if necessary.
