Mission Statement

Empowering Milwaukee County residents with the resources to move beyond poverty.

Description

For forty-five years, the Social Development Commission (SDC) has served as a planner, coordinator, and implementer of human service programs for low-income individuals and families in Milwaukee County. The SDC was established in 1963 as an intergovernmental Public Commission under Wisconsin State Statute SS66.433. In 1964, the SDC was designated as the Community Action Agency (CAA) for Milwaukee County.

The SDC directly operates 18 programs designed to improve the overall quality of life for low-income people. Through its programs, the SDC provides services to approximately 100,000 people annually.

The SDC targets its services to low-income individuals and families who reside in Milwaukee County. The target population includes children in single-parent households, low-income older adults, at-risk youth involved in delinquency and gang-related activities, low-income homeowners and homeless families. The SDC's clients mirror the profile of poverty in Milwaukee.
