How You Can Help

The coronavirus and the economic downturn are impacting us all, but the communities that Inner City Law Center serves are especially hard hit. You can take action today to help ensure that our most vulnerable citizens get the support they need to survive this crisis.

Fundraise Now that everyone is staying home, you can create a virtual fundraiser to help our neighbors who are most at-risk, both economically and medically. From virtual happy hours to game nights, we encourage you to get creative and raise funds that will support people who are experiencing homelessness or in danger of losing their home.

Donate Your gift today can help people get access to life-saving hygiene, find shelter, avoid eviction, obtain critical benefits and more. Please give as generously as you can.

Pro Bono Attorneys, paralegals and other professionals provide critical services to help change the lives of ICLC clients. During California’s stay-at-home mandate, those who are interested in offering their pro bono services in the future can take advantage of ICLC’s free virtual training sessions on eviction defense, citation clearing, and cultural sensitivity. See our class schedule and RSVP today.

Volunteer (Homeful.LA) Although stay-at-home mandates are in full effect, many of our partner agencies are offering safe new ways to make a difference. Please visit our homeful.la page to learn more.

Advocate (Homeful.LA) Inner City Law Center has dramatically ramped up its advocacy efforts on behalf of tenants and homeowners, our unhoused neighbors, all of LA’s workers including people who are undocumented, and incarcerated. Visit ICLC’s Homeful.LA to sign petitions, reach out to lawmakers and more.

Share information People who are struggling may have a hard time getting the up-to-date information they need about services and resources available to them. Visit ICLC’s COVID-19 Resource Page for information regarding evictions, and Homeful.LA for the latest information on shelter, meals, handwashing stations, restrooms and a comprehensive list of additional resources.
