Melinda Nicholson

Melinda Nicholson has a long history with Call for Help, Inc. She currently serves as the Program Director for the Community Stabilization Program. She began volunteering for the agency in 2004. She was touched by the services the agency provided and is thankful the agency is in the community. She was hired as an Accountant for the agency in 2005. She left the agency in 2006 to work for the St. Clair County Intergovernmental Grants Department. However, the agency and its mission never left her heart. Melinda joined the Board of Directors in 2007, where she severed as Board President for two terms. She accepted the position as Program Director in 2014.

When asked about her proudest moments with Call for Help, Inc. Melinda responded with, “ We often see new residents come into the program feeling hopeless and broken. However, through our services we see them come out of their shell and regain a positive look on life. You recognize the change when you start to see smiles instead of tears or a blank stare. I am proud that our services can make such a positive impact on our residents.“
