Supportive Services and Elko Case Manager
As part of the Supportive Services Team at Posada, I work to link the homeless to emergency services provided by Posada and the greater Pueblo community. I coordinate the intake process and evaluate the needs of individuals and families in crisis and offer referrals to appropriate community agencies. I am responsible for program management of the Elko Family Shelter and assist families in the successful transition from emergency shelter to permanent housing. I work to coordinate the annual Homeless Memorial, the Community Picnic and Take Care Fair, and the Homeless Stand Down. I coordinate a grant with Pueblo Veteran’s Services for Homeless Veterans. I joined the staff of Posada in 1999 and since that time have worked tirelessly to ensure that the needs of the homeless are sustained through fair housing opportunities. I maintain a positive attitude and do my best to foster optimism in all who walk through my door. When I am not wrangling children at the family shelter, I keep track of my own happy and successful family of five children and seven grandchildren and in this stage of my life also care for my mother in my own home.
