The Chapman Partnership houses 500 people at its homeless shelter in downtown Miami.
In recent days, several clients living at the shelter have come forward to complain about what they call a prolific bed bug infestation.
Yoanne Eduardo, a resident at the shelter, rolled up her jeans to reveal three large red bumps on her right leg. She also has similar bumps on her back.
“I have marks all over my body,” she said. “I got them since I been there. It’s constantly itching.”
Eduardo lives at the shelter with her 9-year-old son and month-old baby.
