Homeless for the holidays: Family 'just wants a roof over our heads'

Campione said her family appreciates Bowman Realty for letting them live rent-free in exchange for fixing up the trailer, and for helping them find a new home.

"They're very nice," she said.

Campione said she has tried seeking help from resources including the Homeless Coalition, Salvation Army, Catholic Charities and United Way, but without success.

With the Thanksgiving holiday in the middle of their eight-day grace period, finding assistance has been difficult, Campione said.

"I just don't know what to do. I really don't — especially this time of year," she said. "This is supposed to be a time of miracles. Someone has to have a heart somewhere. We're not looking for a handout. We just want a roof over our heads. That's all."
