Melissa Pino (she/her)

Community Coordinator (Safe Babies Court Team)

Melissa Pino joined the Children’s Law Center’s Safe Babies Court Team in Pueblo County in 2021. She comes to the position with over 18 years of experience in working with all ages of youth and adults in the human services and mental health fields. She most recently served as a child welfare caseworker, focusing on family engagement in cases with children under the age of 6. In that role, she worked intensely with the Pueblo Safe Baby Court Team as the court was first developed, so she has been on board since the beginning! Outside of work, Melissa loves spending all her time with her family and tending to the many sports activities of her own children.
