Organizer of A Community Response to Homelessness: A Forum with Community Leaders
Inner City Law Center created Homeful.LA because of our desire to stop calling what we see on our streets the “new normal.” None of us can solve this crisis on our own, but together we can do better. We must do better. We will do better. Join us in our mission to end homelessness. Donate, advocate or volunteer today.

Homeful.LA has partnered with various homeless service providers and elected officials in West Los Angeles to host this forum.
