She found Dan, a sad-faced painter stricken with multiple sclerosis, who moved into a room in her Van Nuys house to escape a prison-like apartment. * Lena's elegantly furnished Encino condominium had a two-story glass wall, a loft and a patio "you could make a wedding on."

The City Council on Monday approved a $38.6-million budget for 1991-92. The budget includes an increase in funding for social services. The council in recent weeks had considered a proposal to cut $175,000 in funding for the city's numerous social-service providers. It chose instead to make cuts elsewhere, slicing its own travel budget by $20,000 and consolidating the city's public services division with other city departments.

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.
