WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
EVERY ADULT IN FLORIDA IS A "MANDATORY" REPORTER!
In the state of Florida, every adult is considered a "mandatory" reporter when it comes to child abuse. It is not required that you have "proof". You are only required to have a "reasonable suspicion" that abuse may exist.
DO NOT WAIT TO "SEE WHAT HAPPENS" OR INVESTIGATE YOURSELF
If you are a victim

JOIN BIKERS C.A.R.E. or START A CHAPTER!
We are always looking for good men and women to join our fight against abuse. The math is simple - the more of us there are, the more children in Central Florida we can help!
If you live in Lake, Sumter, Citrus, Hernando, Polk or Pasco counties, our Mother Chapter is currently serving these areas. Meeting information is posted on our Facebook page or you can contact us HERE.
If you are interested in starting a chapter in your area, use our contact page to reach out to us. You'll need at least 4 others qualified to be full Members to start with!
What does it take to be a part of Bikers C.A.R.E.?
* You must be at least 18 years of age.
* If you seek full Member status, you must ride, or have access to, a motorcycle that meets the standards of Bikers C.A.R.E. (cruisers and sport bikes welcome!) Supporting members are NOT required to ride.
* You must agree to a fingerprint FDLE/FBI background check at your expense. We're not looking for perfect angels. We all have a little dirt in our past. Those with any history of domestic violence or abuse against spouses or children, however, need NOT apply!
For more information, come to a meeting! They are always open to the public!
