Hal Campbell, Project Grant Coordinator: Building Capacity to Serve Survivors with Disabilities for the Rape Crisis Center of Coastal Horizons Center, Inc.
Hal began his tenure with RCC as a volunteer hospital responder several years ago. Today, he directs a federal grant to enhance response services for victims with disabilities. Individuals with sensory or motor disabilities, persons with low vision, cognitive delays, or who are deaf have a higher rate of sexual assault than people without disabilities, but they almost never disclose this violence. Hal works to support their coming forward, by making sure the Rape Crisis Center is accommodating and ready and individual counselors are appropriately trained to serve their distinct needs.
"To release people from their fears even in the face of grave dangers, to give them a measure of contentment and peace that passes their understanding."
"My beautiful wife, Mary Ann."
