The second top executive in two years has been named to lead Sonoma County’s Family Justice Center.
Gloria Eurotas, who was previously victim services director for District Attorney Jill Ravitch, was appointed to the job on a temporary basis.
Eurotas fills a spot created by the May firing of Laura Colgate. Assistant District Attorney Christine Cook had been running the center since Colgate’s departure.
Ravitch said the changes will take the center “to the next level.”
The center is a clearing house for services for victims of family violence, child abuse, sexual assault and elder abuse. It opened last year in offices on Mendocino Avenue.
Eurotas led the district attorney’s victim services unit since May 2011. Previously, she worked for Catholic Charities in Santa Rosa and was executive director of Kansas City Neighborhood Alliance for five years.
The Family Justice Center position pays up to $80,000, according to a job description released this summer.
