The past year has brought mixed blessings to Haven Hills Inc., a Canoga Park-based nonprofit agency that funds domestic violence prevention programs and operates a shelter for battered women. The slaying of Nicole Brown Simpson has ironically been a boon to Haven Hills and similar organizations because it has heightened public awareness of the domestic violence problem, said Betty Fisher, the shelter's executive director.

This is the scenario: Two teens are on a date at a party, having a good time, until the boy tries to coerce the girl into having sex with him in an upstairs bedroom. She says, "No." He responds using insults and physical force. It is this scenario that women from the Haven Hills Teen Dating Violence Prevention Team, part of Haven Hills Inc., a shelter for battered women, are trying to combat.

Leaders of a San Fernando Valley women's group said plans are underway to build what will be the largest long-term shelter for battered women in Los Angeles County. "At most emergency women's shelters, you can only stay between 30 to 60 days," said Melissa Hilario, a board member of Women Advancing the Valley Through Education, Economics and Empowerment, or WAVE. "Our transitional shelter is going to be the second stage. Women and their children can stay up to 18 months," Hilario said.

Domestic violence does not always spill out into public view as dramatically as it did last week. A man chased his longtime girlfriend through her Studio City workplace and into rush-hour traffic on Laurel Canyon Boulevard, shooting her to death and then killing himself. But whether it takes place behind closed doors in the family home or before horrified commuters on their way to work, it exacts a deadly toll.

When Anne Williams, manager of a local shelter for battered women, needs donations for her clients, she says she doesn't worry about how she will get them. She says that somehow--often as if by magic--the badly needed items turn up. Take the case of car seats for babies, which are at a premium in shelters. After she gave away the shelter's only car seat to a client who was leaving, she realized she would have to find a seat to replace it.

Kristine Ghazelian, barely 16, and her sister Talar, 14, were left injured and orphaned Dec. 21 after their father went on a rampage, killing their mother, their 13-year-old sister, Garine, and then himself. Gabriel Ghazelian, a Sherman Oaks auto mechanic, was apparently distraught over his impending divorce from his wife, Zabel, a popular teacher at the Rose and Alex Pilibos Armenian School in Hollywood, which the three girls attended.

After 20 years of planning, hoping and working, Haven Hills Inc., an agency serving victims of domestic violence in the San Fernando Valley, officially opened the doors Monday to its new transitional housing and employment program for battered women and their children. Haven Two, which offers low-cost housing, job counseling and will eventually offer day care, was once an earthquake-damaged apartment building.

The story in Monday's View section on Shiloh Shelter caught my interest because of my involvement with Haven Hills, a comprehensive family violence center serving the San Fernando Valley since 1977. While we at Haven Hills applaud all publicity about this enormous community problem and welcome the addition of this new community service, we are concerned that some of the information in the article might be misleading and thus be a disservice to our community. Ms. Scarf's statements might lead the reader to view Jewish battered women as different from other battered women.
