The director of a program that serves free meals to senior citizens in Orange County said she has been vindicated by a rebuttal released Monday to an audit that alleged her agency was overpaid. The rebuttal by the Area Agency on Aging contradicts the Orange County Grand Jury's audit in September, which concluded that the program had been receiving more than its fair share of public funds. "It's been frustrating," Shirley Cohen, executive director of the Feedback Foundation in Anaheim, said.

More than 80 parents and care givers for the disabled packed a meeting room of the Developmental Disabilities Center in Orange on Thursday to question the nonprofit agency's plans to close a $3-million gap in state funds for disabled services. The agency, which serves about 7,000 disabled people in Orange County, in July cut more than $1.7 million in proposed spending for the current fiscal year to match an expected shortfall in state funds.

Benefit payments and services to Los Angeles County's poorest residents--who make up about 20% of the population--will have to be slashed if supervisors stick to their budget proposal for the Department of Public Social Services, its director said Thursday. Director Eddy Tanaka said the proposed $113-million cut in the agency's budget will be devastating.

Operators of the Oxnard-based Zoe Christian Center on Monday appealed a decision supporting the city's intention to shut off the center's water supply for failing to pay a $45,000 utility bill. City workers were prepared to cut off water service Wednesday morning to Zoe's Rose Avenue homeless shelter and its Hayes Avenue facility for homeless women and children. The appeal most likely will delay the cutoff date, said Tom Wilson, customer service supervisor for Oxnard's water department.

At first, the news from the state Office of AIDS seemed good to the directors of the Los Angeles Women's AIDS Project. The $40,000 already earmarked for the community agency's education and prevention work would be increased by $15,000. But, as AIDS project co-founder and board President Joyce Macy soon discovered, getting the additional money meant starting all over with the lengthy and complicated process of obtaining a state contract for the entire grant.

Federal housing officials have rejected a $15.1-million grant application submitted by Orange County to pay for 21 projects that would have helped the homeless, the disabled and victims of domestic violence. The request was for a share of the money given annually by the Department of Housing and Urban Development to fund community projects. "Orange County got a big zero," said Bob Wilson, director of the county's Housing and Community Development Department. "It's a slap in the face."

Senior citizens in West and South County might not be getting their fair share when it comes to meal programs for the elderly, according to an audit commissioned by the Orange County Grand Jury. The 66-page study found that one of three organizations providing meals for seniors, the Anaheim-based Feedback Foundation, received 63% of the county's nutrition funds, even though it serves an area containing 39% of the county's senior population.

The Board of Supervisors this week directed county officials to identify preventive health-care and social-services programs that might receive more money in next fiscal year's budget. Board Chairman William G. Steiner proposed the action, saying the county needs to refocus priorities on programs that prevent larger social ills and "get the greatest return on our expenditures."

Strolling around the Rose Bowl is a pleasant way to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon, but on Nov. 3, about 400 people will amble through the lovely grounds to combat an ugly problem--child abuse. The fund-raising walk, called the "Stroll to End Child Abuse," will benefit Foothill Family Service, a Pasadena-based nonprofit group that runs child abuse prevention programs in the San Gabriel Valley, Glendale, La Crescenta and Burbank.

Following the most successful fund-raising effort in its seven-year history, AIDS Walk Orange County has announced it will award $421,500 to service agencies in the county this week.

Weary of panhandlers at ATMs, drug dealers in the parks and millions of dollars in social service spending, Santa Monica neighborhood activists dumped 12,000 signatures in the city clerk's office Tuesday, demanding a vote on a long list of get-tough homeless policies. "We've always been a city with a heart," said Jean Sedillos, a community activist and longtime opponent of the renters' rights group that dominates local politics. "This injects a brain into the picture."

It is being called the opportunity of a lifetime, a great chance to help the homeless and reverse decades of community apathy that allowed the creation of a shantytown along the bottom of the Ventura River. When floodwaters ripped out homeless encampments along the riverbed earlier this month, the city, the county and nonprofit agencies worked together as never before to establish an assistance center aimed at matching displaced squatters with housing and social services.
