In a rare move, officials from the San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valley region of the United Way have stopped providing funding to the Home Visitation Center, a nonprofit outreach agency that has provided food and clothing to some of Pacoima's poorest residents since 1979. Last month, a United Way volunteer committee charged with reviewing the center's status ruled that the Home Visitation Center did not comply with administrative, management and oversight criteria required by United Way.

A Pacoima charity that provides food, clothing and other services to some of the San Fernando Valley's poorest residents may be forced to close this month if the United Way votes to withhold funds from the agency. The Home Visitation Center, a nonprofit outreach agency on Van Nuys Boulevard, has been known since 1979 for its "no questions asked" policy of providing aid to the needy.

The United Way of Greater Los Angeles has announced staff cuts and a major restructuring plan in a bid to reverse a dramatic five-year fund-raising dive. The nonprofit giant--the fifth-largest United Way in the nation--will trim 40 positions, mainly in research and planning areas, from its 200-member work force. Since 1990, the agency that provides funds to hundreds of nonprofit groups and charities, from the YMCA to the Girl Scouts, has slashed grants 41%.
