It was 9:15 on the night of May 27, and Cara Vanni was chatting with a friend on the phone, just like any number of San Clemente teen-agers. Suddenly the line went dead. A minute later, strangers appeared in her bedroom doorway. "My parents brought these three people into my room," Cara, 16, recalled. "At first I thought they were old friends of the family who were about to say they knew me when I was 4. They weren't."

Less than two weeks after the state Parole Department forced the closure of the Ryan Center in North Hollywood over alleged building and safety violations, the residential facility for parolees and recovering addicts has found a new home. Actually, two homes. The nonprofit, privately run center is now operating out of a six-bedroom house in Pacoima and a three-bedroom house in Lake View Terrace. Although the center's director initially fought the change, she is now pleased.

A Studio City-based teen counseling group is working to reopen Ventura County's only residential drug and alcohol treatment center for adolescents, hoping to fill what many say is a glaring void in services for the area's troubled youth. The Rainbow Recovery Youth Center for girls, which operated in a four-bedroom farmhouse on an avocado- and orange-tree orchard in Santa Paula, shut its doors in August because of lack of funding. It had six beds.

Students at Meadow Oaks School played host this week to boys from a home for abused children, recipients of the proceeds of a school fund-raiser. Ten boys and their counselors spent Wednesday at the Meadow Oaks Camp in Calabasas, swimming, riding horses, boating and panning for gold. The junior high classes at Meadow Oaks adopted Cottage 1A of the Childhelp USA Village in Beaumont as a community service project after hearing from the program's directors about the children who live at the camp.

The first residential care facility for people with AIDS in the west San Fernando Valley will open next week in a five-bedroom house in West Hills. The new facility was established by the Homestead Hospice and Shelter, the agency that built the only other home for AIDS patients in the Valley, the Pioneer House in Van Nuys. The new home has been named the Frank Cala House after a Valley AIDS activist who died of the disease. The Cala House can provide beds to up to six people.

Re "Do the time, lower the crime," Opinion, March 30 There is no doubt that putting more people in prison over the last 25 years has helped cut the crime rate, as James Q. Wilson contends. But with one in 100 adults now behind bars and states facing billion-dollar deficits, the more relevant question is: Are there more cost-effective ways to enhance public safety? Several states are finding there are. Texas has residential treatment facilities for low-level, nonviolent offenders with drug problems.

Bowing to objections from artists and small business owners, the San Diego City Council on Tuesday refused to put a transitional housing center for homeless teen-agers in a Centre City East neighborhood that has become a nascent arts district. Instead, the council promised to help permanently locate the Toussant Teen Center in a Marina District warehouse--without consulting the property owner. The council had previously imposed a three-year occupancy limit for the center at the warehouse.
