Welcome to the Human Service Chamber of Franklin County (HSCFC). The Chamber serves as one voice for Central Ohio social service agencies that have the responsibility of providing life saving, and life enhancing, programs for people. It offers member agencies a collective approach to advocating for clients, impacting public policy, and collaborating for more effective and efficient service delivery. For the community and for our members, HSCFC provides information and tools to boost awareness of and support for human services. One example is our recent economic impact report which revealed that together, all nonprofits in Franklin County generate over $6 billion in business activity. More impact information is available in the full report here. Another example is the GiveDirectCentralOhio.org, a web site that serves as a one-stop clearinghouse for information on HSCFC member agencies, and allows visitors to donate online, with 100 percent going to the agencies chosen. The HSCFC is a powerful interchange for agencies to collaborate, find ways to share services, pool resources and collaborate with other social service advocates. In today’s economic climate, it is essential that agencies find ways to achieve economies of scale and the HSCFC is a catalyst for this in Columbus when it comes to human service nonprofits.
