Probably THE biggest question I get asked about BACA is "Why do you do it?". People hear about all the sacrifices that members make, how far we're willing to go to help our kids, and they can't help but ask "Why?".
Check out Sabra's post here. I read these stories, and think "There goes another one I could have helped". It's a powerful motivation to help.
And the REALLY scary part? The stories she tells in that post aren't the worst that happens, even here in the US. Google "domestic human trafficking", but be warned you might get nightmares.
That's why I do what I do.
