LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

There is a group of bikers outfitted with tattoos, leather and caring hearts.The Bikers Against Child Abuse organization has been providing protection and support for abused children for nearly 20 years and now there's a Lufkin chapter kicking up their kickstands for kids.

On the outside they look tough as nails but on the inside they have compassionate hearts especially when it comes to kids.

"We are Bikers Against Child Abuse," said Wolf, president of B.A.C.A.. Lufkin

The newly formed Lufkin chapter of the non-profit provides support to children who are victims of abuse.

"We are here to help empower kids not to be afraid in the world in which they live," said Wolf.

B.A.C.A. gets referrals from local child advocacy agencies.They welcome the children into their biker family and vice versa then vow to protect them.

"We are soft-hearted when it comes to our kids but make no mistake about it we will be that obstacle if someone tries to come and hurt one of our kids," said Wolf.

"We are bikers and this is what we do but we believe them. We don't ask them what happened to them. We don't care. We're here for them. And most children are not used to that kind of support. The children that have been abused, most of the ones that have been abused by people who had their trust and they're looking for something away for that," said Wolf.

B.A.C.A. bikers will go to court, sit outside while the children play and even go to church to make sure they feel safe.

"That means if they need somebody to go with them to church, we will escort them to church and sit in the church pew with them if they need us to," said Wolf. "If they are feeling where they can't go outside and play in their own yard. We'll come set outside in the yard and let them play."

"When we roll in on the motorcycles and we roll in looking like what we do. We're kind of outcasts so by us being outcast by others. It's almost like children invite us in and they use that for their support," said Wolf.

It's part of their mission is to send a clear message to any perpetrator that this child is part of B.A.C.A.. and they're prepared to lend their physical and emotional support.

"We're there for them not to be afraid so they can come out and be children again. We want to give them the power back," said Wolf.
