Homeful.LA’s Mission

Inner City Law Center created its Homeful.LA program in 2018. In order to engage Angelenos in solving the County’s homelessness crisis. None of us can solve this crisis on our own, but together we can do better.

Thank you to the Bill & Dinah Ruch Family Foundation for their support in helping ICLC launch this initiative.

Meet Our Leaders

Adam Murry, Executive Director Inner City Law Center

Adam Murray

Adam Murray is the Chief Executive Officer of Inner City Law Center, a non-profit law firm serving the most vulnerable individuals and families in Los Angeles County. Founded on the fundamental principle that every person should always be treated with dignity and respect, ICLC’s 125+ staff and 450+ volunteers provide legal representation and advocacy to thousands of homeless and working poor clients, focused on combating slum housing, preventing homelessness, and aiding homeless veterans.

In his ten plus years as ICLC’s Chief Executive Officer, Adam has guided Inner City Law Center’s transformation from a five-attorney law firm with a $1.4 million budget to a thirty-five-attorney law firm with a $9 million budget. In addition, over the past three years, pro bono attorneys from private firms donated over $35 million worth of free legal services to ICLC clients.

Adam has taught economics and political science at East Los Angeles College. He has served as president of the board of both the Housing Rights Center of Southern California and the Immigration Center for Women and Children. He is a former Commissioner with the Los Angeles County Citizens’ Committee on Economy and Efficiency and is also a former board member of the Fair Housing Council of the San Gabriel Valley, the ACLU of Southern California, and the Center for Progressive Leadership.

Adam received a B.A. in International Relations from Pomona College, an M.A. in Economics from Claremont Graduate University, and a J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law. Adam was a Stanton Fellow with the Durfee Foundation in 2014 and 2015. When not working, Adam enjoys playing soccer with his wife and two young children.
