Sulzbacher Center Chief Program Officer Cindy Funkhouser was named president and CEO of the organization effective next Tuesday.
Funkhouser succeeds Audrey Moran. Moran, a veteran City administration executive and former mayoral candidate, will join Baptist Health as senior vice president of social responsibility and community advocacy starting Oct. 3.
Moran said in May she would resign as president and CEO of the Sulzbacher Center by the end of the year.
“Cindy will be an outstanding president and CEO for the Sulzbacher Center,” board Chair William Scheu said in a news release.
“Her wealth of experience, her relationships in the community and her compassion for our community’s most vulnerable citizens make her the perfect choice.”
Funkhouser has a master’s degree in social work from Florida State University and has been chief program officer at Sulzbacher for two years.
Before that, she was executive director of B.E.A.M., the Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry.
Sulzbacher Center serves homeless men, women and children. Services include street outreach, daily meals, shelter, case management, job placement, medical, dental and mental health care as well as scattered-site housing.
Every day, the Sulzbacher Center is home to more than 300 people.
