The Women's Care Cottage, a nonprofit organization for homeless women and children in Van Nuys, will receive at least $10,000 from the UPS Foundation and is in the running for $100,000, an amount that would facilitate a planned move to a larger site. The Women's Care Cottage now operates a day drop-in center in a cramped one-bedroom cottage on the property of the First United Methodist Church on Sylvan Street.

Citing health hazards, zoning code violations and more than $43,000 in unpaid utility bills, the city of Oxnard on Wednesday shut off water and effectively closed Ventura County's only year-round shelter for the homeless. Zoe Christian Center officials decried the action as part of a city crusade to thwart their efforts to help the homeless. But some residents of the 11-year-old shelter praised the city for moving them into permanent housing.

Operators of the 10-year-old center say they have fallen more than $300,000 behind in rent, utilities and other bills over the last two years.

Burdened by county budget cuts and a recent heavy influx of immigrant World War II veterans, the Filipino-American Service Group Inc. is concerned that plans to expand its transitional housing program could be jeopardized without more funds. Money woes have left the 11-year-old agency three months in arrears on rent for its eight-room emergency shelter for homeless senior citizens and could dash plans to open a 12-room home in six months.

The Orange County Bar Assn. has earmarked $10,000 for its homeless task force to assist in efforts to place transients in temporary housing.

A Los Angeles City Council panel Monday adopted a plan to spend $30,000, originally allocated to shelter homeless people in the San Fernando Valley, on similar services in the downtown Skid Row area. But reallocation of the funds, recommended by the Community Redevelopment and Housing Committee, will not diminish the Valley program to shelter the homeless in cold and wet weather, said Nancy Bianconi, an executive at L.
