Orange County is in bankruptcy, child abuse is on the rise, state and national programs are needing to cut costs, and the city of Anaheim wants to give the Eli Home a hard time. The Eli Home helps abused children and their mothers at no cost to the city, state, or national government. The Eli Home survives totally by donations. Those donations don't always come on time, and yes, the Eli Home has had some late payments. The government does pay late, and the government spends money it doesn't have.

Given Anaheim's ranking as California's 10th largest city, voters might expect some heady election day issues, including whether to build a professional football stadium, the direction of downtown redevelopment and how to beautify aging neighborhoods. But the hot topic these days is a shelter for abused children and their mothers.

While I completely agree with your editorial "Shelter Deserves a Fair Chance" (June 28), it doesn't look like "fair" is in the cards for the Eli Home as long as politics and not merit dictate policy on the Anaheim City Council. It is no secret that the 3-2 splits on the City Council are purely political and have nothing to do with the case made by the opposing residents in Anaheim Hills. It has everything to do with the political ties of the Galloways, who are trying their best to offer a badly needed service to Anaheim and Orange County.

The Orange County Human Relations Commission has stepped in to mediate an ongoing dispute between an Anaheim Hills women's shelter and a group of residents opposed to it. The mediation process began last week, after the Anaheim City Council decided to drop its earlier action against Eli Home Inc. Carol Flynn, deputy city attorney, said she has not been asked to pursue additional investigations of the shelter since.

A state investigation into the operation of the Eli Home, a shelter for abused women and their children, has found no evidence of wrongdoing, officials with the state attorney general's office said Thursday. The embattled charity has been engaged in a bitter battle with its future neighbors in Anaheim Hills, where the Eli Home plans to open a shelter. Neighbors have accused the home's operators of misusing donated funds.

A Superior Court judge has dismissed the last of three lawsuits against Anaheim Hills residents who oppose an emergency shelter for abused women and children. In his ruling, Judge Ronald L. Bauer said that resident Gene Secrest has a right under the 1st Amendment to voice his opinions about Eli Home and its operations. Shelter officials filed the slander suit against Secrest in 1995, claiming he was damaging fund-raising efforts by publicly accusing them of mishandling donations.

President Bush recognized the Eli Home for abused children this week as the latest star in the Points of Light program. Founded in 1982, the Eli Home offers emergency shelter, counseling and therapy to children who have suffered physical or sexual abuse and to their mothers, who in many cases have been the abusers. Executive Director Lorri Galloway said that last year the shelter helped about 900 people, 75% of them children.

One of the few things former President George Bush and President Bill Clinton apparently agree on is the value of the Eli Home. The nonprofit organization, dedicated to preventing child abuse, was named the 338th Point of Light by Bush three years ago and now is set to receive a Presidential Citation from Clinton for outstanding community service. "It's amazing to me," said Lorri Galloway, executive director and co-founder of the home.

The Eli Home, a shelter for battered women that was approved by the City Council last fall, came under attack again this week by neighbors who don't want the home in their neighborhood. The question before the council was a request by operators of the home to build a block wall around the facility that would encroach on city property along Santa Ana Canyon Road. However, the matter quickly escalated.

Re "Shelter Hopes HUD Probe Will Keep Doors Open," June 14: We have always appreciated the fairness that The Times has shown in its reporting of the Eli Home. However, this article left out a very significant fact. Every one of the complaints lodged against the Eli Home by a few disgruntled neighbors were investigated by the Anaheim Code Enforcement Department or the Anaheim police. No citations were ever issued and no violations were ever substantiated. Allegations of traffic or parking problems were false and maliciously claimed by opponents who have made it very clear that they believe abused children do not belong in their upscale area of Anaheim Hills.

The Eli Home was to be a haven for victims of domestic violence when it opened 14 months ago. Instead, the shelter in affluent Anaheim Hills has become a war zone. With photos and videos in hand, neighbors have complained constantly to the city about noise and traffic around the three-story house in the middle of a canyon, where about 20 women and children now live. They have hired lawyers and private investigators to prove their case. Last month, the city listened.

The operating permit for a home for abused children and their mothers will be reviewed by the City Council today. The city's Planning Commission last month approved renewing the Eli Home's operating permit for two more years, despite objections from neighbors. Lorri Galloway, executive director of the year-old shelter, said the council will be asked to approve a permit with no time limit.

A home for abused children and their mothers this week was granted a two-year operating permit over objections from neighbors. Eli Home officials had asked the Planning Commission for an operating permit that eliminated a one-year limitation. Planning staffers recommended keeping the one-year limit, but commissioners agreed to extend the permit until April 2, 2000. The shelter drew opposition from neighbors when it opened last April in an upscale neighborhood in the hills.

As a feud heats up between Eli Home officials and its neighbors, City Councilman Lou Lopez on Thursday called for an investigation into allegations that the shelter for abused women and children is misusing donated funds. "We need to make sure they are in good standing and financially sound," Lopez said. "I think for the good of the Eli Home, we should clear this matter up." Earlier this week, the Eli Home filed a $19.

Overriding objections from some neighbors, the City Council voted to allow an emergency shelter for abuse victims to open in an upscale Anaheim Hills neighborhood. "Clearly, this project is about solving problems in our society," said Mayor Tom Daly. "That's why I'm supporting this project." The vote will allow the Eli Home to renovate a run-down structure at the southeast corner of Santa Ana Canyon Road and Canyon Crest Drive to accommodate up to 22 people.

The Eli Home for abused children and their mothers has won city approval to allow its clients to have visitors and to park their vehicles on shelter property. The Planning Commission recently approved the changes to the nonprofit group's operating permit despite opposition from neighbors of the Anaheim Hills shelter. The city had also received a number of complaints from neighbors about parking problems.

The Eli Home for abused and neglected children and their mothers has faced fierce opposition from nearby residents over the past three years, but the unrelenting controversy has not stopped the shelter from accepting its first families this week. "It's been a long project," said shelter founder Lorri Galloway. "Something that should not have taken so long."
