About Us

What exactly is the Human Service Chamber?

History

Now in its sixth year of existence, the Human Service Chamber of Franklin County was conceived by local leaders who realized that the human service sector needed to form an entity that would:

  • represent the sector as a whole among public officials and key stakeholders;
  • facilitate collaborations to address complex, systemic issues;
  • provide useful professional learning opportunities; and
  • achieve economies of scale through shared services and pooled resources.

Mission

The mission of the Human Service Chamber of Franklin County is to enhance system efficiencies and effectiveness in order to develop one voice for the human service system by promoting, enhancing, and advocating for human service organizations and the clients they serve in central Ohio.

Vision

The Chamber’s vision is to become the respected and trusted voice for human service organizations and their clients in central Ohio; that human services in Franklin County will be accurately portrayed in the media, and well-regarded among political, business, and philanthropic leaders; and that the Human Service Chamber will enhance the quality of life for Franklin County residents through greater advocacy, collaboration and leadership.

Organizational Structure

The Chamber is led by a Board of Directors that oversees the policy direction of the organization. The Board of Directors guides the general membership of the organization, who, in turn, participate through standing committees. Day-to-day operations are carried out by full-time staff members.

Issues

... the things we care about and are trying to change

Housing

… an affordable home for everyone in our community

We’re working together to increase the amount of affordable homes, create more economically integrated neighborhoods, allow seniors to “age in place,” and provide supportive housing options for people with unique needs.

Jobs

… an opportunity to earn a living for anyone who is able to work

We’re advocating for changes that will put more young adults to work, helping our members to match business needs with trained workers, developing programs that will integrate new Americans into the workforce, and pushing for an increase in the minimum wage.

Children

… all children grow up in an environment that prepares them for success

We’re ensuring that Central Ohio prepares its children by providing early education opportunities, out-of-school programming, summer learning activities, and outstanding mentoring programs.

Health

… a community that promotes healthy living and provides extraordinary treatment

We’re building Franklin County’s capacity to serve the oncoming wave of aging baby boomers, pushing for reforms that would allow our members to keep up with the demand created by Medicaid expansion, and ensure that Franklin County residents have access to an adequate amount of addiction prevention and recovery supports that insurance will not cover.

Systems

… an efficient and effective human service sector

We’re trying to make Franklin County an even better place for human service agencies to operate by enacting policy changes that would help to reduce turnover among home health aides, social workers, and other front-line program staff, as well as promoting efforts to develop comprehensive, coordinated case management systems for human services.
