Tallahassee, FL - Dr. Ed H. Moore, President & CEO of the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF), was selected to join Children’s Home Society of Florida’s (CHS) board of directors. CHS is a statewide organization that offers critical services for more than 100,000 children and family members throughout the state.
“I am honored to serve on the board of CHS. The compassion and guidance this organization provides to countless children throughout the Sunshine State has changed many lives,” said Dr. Moore. “CHS programs not only enhance the quality of life for our state’s youngest, but they work to ensure teenagers in foster care are prepared to be independent adults through life skills training and access to higher education opportunities.”
ICUF is a statewide association of 29 private, not for profit colleges and universities serving more than 130,000 students. Dr. Moore has been with ICUF since 2003 and prior to this role, was a senior staffer to the state’s legislative leaders in the Florida House of Representatives. Earlier this year, Dr. Moore sat on Governor Rick Scott’s education transition team.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Moore join our Board of Directors. Dr. Moore brings years of experience in both the private sector and government and will help CHS implement its’ strategic vision for breaking generational cycles of child abuse and neglect,” said David Bundy, President and CEO of CHS.
CHS is a champion of justice and encouragement for kids all across the state and ensuring victimized youth succeed inside and outside the classroom is a top priority for the organization. CHS utilizes a network of volunteers, foundations and prominent universities to prevent abuse and ensure successful futures for Florida’s children. The organization was accredited in 1982 by the Council on Accreditation and has 14 divisional offices across the state with nearly 2,000 trained staff members.
