Brea* moved to a new apartment only to find her home was infested with bedbugs. She contacted the landlord many times but nothing was done and both Brea and her daughter were covered in bites. Brea wanted to move out. However, she was afraid she would be penalized for breaking her lease and end up with an eviction on her record, which would make obtaining new housing very hard. With the help of Doctors & Lawyers for Kids, Brea was able to get out of her lease and move to sanitary housing without negative legal impacts for her family.
