Inner City Law Center

ICLC provides a wide variety of legal services focused mainly on housing and homelessness to low-income individuals and families: 

Healthy Homes

ICLC promotes decent, affordable housing and addresses conditions that threaten the health and safety of low-income tenants.  ICLC educates and organizes tenants so as to empower them to force landlords to repair buildings and improve unhealthy conditions.  ICLC sues landlords who fail to comply with the legal requirements of safe and decent housing.

Homeless Veterans

We also advocate for veterans so that they obtain and maintain housing, health and other assistance, thereby ensuring veterans receive the benefits they need and have earned.

Homelessness Prevention 

Provides legal assistance to keep low-income families in their homes, prevent homelessness, and preserve affordable housing.

Public Benefits

ICLC’s public benefits advocacy helps low-income individuals, families, and people living with disabilities apply for and maintain social security disability benefits, food stamps, general relief, and other benefits.

Housing Policy 

ICLC advocates for innovative and effective policy changes that have the potential to dramatically improve our clients’ lives, focusing on healthy homes, veteran homelessness, homelessness prevention, permanent supportive housing, and tenants rights.


ICLC provides legal services and advocacy to people living with HIV or AIDS and their families.
