On April 27th, the Human Service Chamber of Franklin County proudly announced the hiring of Michael Corey as its Executive Director. Michael, who brings nearly ten years of experience from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, is eager to further the Chamber and the work of its nearly 60 members.
“The opportunity to amplify the work of so many critical organizations—critical in our community, and critical in our time—is one that I am eager to take on,” said Michael.
Founded in 2010, the Human Service Chamber (HSC) serves as one voice for social service agencies in Central Ohio that provide lifesaving and life-enhancing programs. It offers member agencies a collective approach to advocating for clients, impacting policy, and collaborating for more effective and efficient service delivery.
“Michael has been a supporter, volunteer, and advocate for many of our members, and we know he is eager to maximize our ability to bring housing, healthcare, education, legal services, and community support to the people we all serve,” said HSC Board Chair and Habitat for Humanity MidOhio President and C.E.O., E.J. Thomas.
An attorney, Michael graduated from Ohio State’s Moritz College of Law in 2012 as Executive Editor of the Ohio State Law Journal. After practicing healthcare law at a regional law firm in Columbus for three years, Michael worked as a policy analyst at an area nonprofit and in voter protection during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Michael holds a B.A. from Duke University and a Master’s in Education Policy from Ohio State. He lives in Columbus with his wife, Lori, who serves as Clinical Director of the YMCA of Central Ohio’s Rapid Rehousing Program.
