Campos is the Business Development Executive–RV for Boyd Corporation. He is responsible for the operations of the Sales Team, which supplies components to the recreational vehicle market. He has already served for several years on the volunteer board for CHH.

“The main thing that attracted me to this organization is that the Center for Healing & Hope helps ALL in need of medical assistance, regardless of faith, status, or even means to pay without intense questioning,” Campos said. “CHH staff and volunteers show their passion and commitment to help make CHH a bridge to medical assistance for all those who do not have medical coverage.”

Campos sites his own experience as motivation for serving in this community leadership role. “As an immigrant from Mexico, coming to this great country as a young man (at age 10) and being blessed with so many opportunities, I find it very important and rewarding to help all of those in need the same way so many helped me get to where I am today.”

The board of CHH includes nine to twelve members, representing a variety of organizations and roles in the Elkhart and Goshen area. The former chair, Tim Stair, a consultant with Mennonite Health Services, Stiffney Group and Evergreen Leaders, will continue serving on the board.
