Melinda Lucero

Rental Assistance Case Manager

Bringing more than 20 years of health care experience assembled from both private and corporate settings, I look forward to dedicating my skills to enhancing the policies, visions and objectives of Posada. A consistent theme in my work resume is my longstanding commitment to working with diverse spectrums of faith based organizations across the country ensuring communities are served in times of need. Joining Posada’s Supportive Services team in June 2020, I am fast-tracking the development and rapid initiation of a tenant based rental assistance program (TBRA). This program will provide financial supports to Pueblo’s most at-risk populations to ensure long-term housing stability.

My favorite quote is from the late Fred Rogers. “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” Joining this dedicated team of professional helpers provides a canvas for me to create a culture of meaningful and empowering opportunities for families and individuals in crisis. I seek to paint a portrait of hope. 

With my husband Carl, we own and operate Perfect World Music, a commercial studio that doubles as a music education academy for local students. Spare time consists of spending time with our two amazing boys, Josh and Caleb. Luckily we all love Denver sports teams, the 1975 concerts and happy hour at our local Sonic restaurant.
