Family finds new home following eviction from rent-free residence

Published: Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 05:30 PM.

"We went under contract with Habitat for Humanity. Just the timing was bad," Bowman said, with Thanksgiving occurring just two days before the family had to move.

Nitsi Bennett, president and chief executive officer of the regional Habitat for Humanity office, said the organization was not responsible for the family having to move.

"(The Campiones) knew that the house was sold," he said. "They were only supposed to be there until they found someplace else."

The Campiones also received an eight-day notice before eviction.

Helping hands

When Campione found the Chestnut Avenue home listed online, Bowman helped the family move.

"We paid their deposit for the new place and we gave them a trailer to move their stuff," he said.
