Bikers Against Child Abuse, 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. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. If circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, WE STAND AT THE READY TO BE THAT OBSTACLE.

     
 

Habitat Pinellas’ program addresses the affordable housing issue by serving qualified homeowner candidates in the 30 – 80 percent area median income range. Not a government or a giveaway program, homeowner candidates work to build their home and the homes of others amassing 350-450 hours of “sweat equity” in partnership with other candidates and volunteers from across the Bay Area. Additionally, homeowners complete 16 classes that range from Being a Good Neighbor and Understanding My Mortgage Documents to Home Maintenance and Financial Education 1, 2 and 3. Once their home is completed they purchase it with a 30 year zero interest mortgage. These payments are then reinvested and combined with contributions from organizations like Hands Across the Bay, allowing Habitat to continue the construction of future homes, thus leaving a perpetual legacy for each homeowner.
