Position Description: Inner City Law Center seeks a Staff Attorney to provide support for a growing project that assists individuals with disabilities who are experiencing homelessness gain access to critical income-support benefits. This Project provides technical assistance, training, and other support on SSI and SSDI applications for individuals experiencing homelessness throughout Los Angeles County.
