Working at Inner City Law Center
We are a nonprofit poverty-law firm located in the Skid Row neighborhood of Los Angeles. Inner City Law Center was founded on the fundamental principle that every person should be treated with dignity and respect. Daily our talented, diverse, and passionate staff fight to prevent and end homelessness.
For each of our clients, we ask, “What is the pathway to long-term stable housing?” Answering that question primarily leads to legal representation that directly addresses a housing challenge (e.g., defending an eviction or suing a slumlord) or that bolsters our client’s financial situation and enables them to better afford housing (e.g., connecting a client with VA or Social Security benefits).
We are looking for extraordinary people to join our fight for housing and for justice.
