Sr. Director of Business Development
As Senior Director of Business Development for Portfolio Resident Services (PRS), Melinda Frazer is responsible for client acquisition and retention, always upholding the company’s mission to provide opportunity and empowerment for affordable housing residents nationwide. Alongside her position at PRS, Melinda also serves as the Executive Director for Today’s Resident Services, another entity of the Inter-Faith Group, helping to provide reporting data and analytics to continue advancing supportive services.
In addition to these roles, Melinda is also a board member for the Texas Association of Local Housing Finance Authorities (TALHFA), a member of the Housing Advisory Group (HAG), co-chair of the Texas Affiliation of Affordable Housing Providers (TAAHP) Scholarship Committee, and a member of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). For her position at TAAHP, she has the opportunity to interview scholarship recipients each year in order to compile a video for the organization’s yearly conference, which has raised awareness and increased fundraising exponentially.
Since Melinda joined PRS in 2010, the company has grown from making an impact in four states to over a dozen, and now serves more than 330 communities. Along with a small team, she helped lead the charge for the organization to become CORES certified, and in 2022, PRS achieved over $11 million in added value across its portfolio.
Over the years, Melinda has also led the charge on marketing videos to help tell the story of PRS’s work with various communities, including during Hurricane Harvey. She notes that working for PRS provides a lot of freedom and creativity to pursue projects she loves.
Due to her skill and expertise, she has had the opportunity to speak at multiple conferences throughout her career, most recently on panels at the TALHFA and TAAHP conferences.
Because of her passion for helping others, Melinda, who attended the University of Oklahoma, has worked in the nonprofit sector her entire career. She notes that her parents instilled in her to always be connecting with and uplifting others.
Born and raised in Texas, outside of work Melinda enjoys spending time with family and friends over a meal or a game, reading, playing backgammon, and serving her own community through volunteer work.
