History of the Organization
We Care for Youth (WCFY) is a California not-for-profit (501(c)(3)) organization. Since 1991, WCFY has provided mentoring, character education, leadership training, organizational management, pre-employment readiness training, even planning, entrepreneurial instruction and activities, peace training and activities to more than 9000 youth.

Incorporated in 1994, WCFY was founded in 1991 by Co-Executive Directors, Linda Maxwell and Jose R. Quintanar. Volunteering with a civic organization, Linda and Jose "adopted" 20 young women from rival gangs. By demonstrating unconditional love, Linda and Jose, worked to build the girls' self-confidence and got them on the right track. Word spread about Linda and Jose's unique abilities to touch and transform troubled youth, and Glendale schools and local law enforcement agencies approached them for help with youth-related issues.
