Bliss Unlimited,
Glendale, California
We Care for Youth (WCFY) was established in 1991 under the leadership of codirectors Linda Maxwell and Jose R. Quintanar; it was incorporated in 1994. The organization's mission statement reads: “We Care for Youth offers unconditional love as the path and employment training as a vehicle toward improving youths' self-respect and competency. Programs engage teens in the learning process and provide life skills that enable them to plan their future with hope.” This mission statement highlights the importance of viewing youth from a capacity versus deficit perspective and underscores the importance of self-respect and competency. WCFY has a fourteen-member board, which includes two youth members. The organization uses six key philosophical principles to guide its development of programs:
1. The philosophy of We Care for Youth and its subdivision, Bliss Unlimited, is that our work is rooted in peace, guided by compassion, and conducted in teamwork, striving for impeccability.
2. Unconditional love is the path we follow to treat all people equally with respect, to accept everyone as they are at that moment. Those who work with us interact with young people out of compassion.
