Cindy krahenbuhl
executive director

Cindy Krahenbuhl MBA, MS began as Executive Director in 2007 and has held that position at Guest Houes of Milwaukee for nearly 12 years. In 2008, Cindy helped spearhead the first Supported Housing Project in Milwaukee in response to the community outcry of lack of services for those with severe and persistent mental health issues, which has grown to over 450 units today. In 2012, Cindy led Guest House in celebrating 30 years of ending homelessness in our clients’ lives in collaboration with the Brewers Community Foundation. In 2015 the Milwaukee Business Journal recognized Cindy as one of Milwaukee’s Women of Influence, “the cream of the crop of Milwaukee’s professional community”. Also that year, Guest House of Milwaukee’s Cream City Gardens and Rain Harvesting Project won the Wells Fargo People’s Choice Award as part of the Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Innovation (MANDI) from the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC). Cindy successfully led a $3 million capital campaign for Guest House which culminated in 2016 with an 8,000 square foot expansion and renovation of our facilities. Cindy continues to lead the organization in the spirit of innovation and dignity for our clients.
