CRESTVIEW — A week and a day. That's how long Debbie Campione and her family were given to move out of their home.

Today was the deadline.

Campione, her daughter, Crystal Pryor, Pryor's five children and their affectionate chocolate Labrador, Mocha, had just eight days to vacate their Lee Avenue home, find a new place to live and move.

Habitat for Humanity will demolish the mobile home in which the family had been living rent-free. It plans to build a new home — one of six planned for Crestview — on the property.

Phil Bowman of Fred Bowman Realty, which sold the property, has been helping the family find a new home, but apart from a pair of unheated, leaky one-bedroom trailers, the search has been fruitless.

A call to Habitat for Humanity for comment was not returned.

Campione said the family has applied for one of the several new Habitat for Humanity homes planned for Crestview, had an interview with the organization Wednesday, and is awaiting word.
