We also have community organizers dedicated to helping renters in multi-unit buildings infested with bed bugs. The organizer provides legal and IPM education for you and interested neighbors, and helps renters unite to demand proper and effective action from the landlord.

If you would like the pro bono services of MTO’s community organizers, please contact us at 773-292-4980 x247 for Devondrick Jeffers or x239 for David Wilson.
