I LOVE MY COMMUNITY ACTION AGENCY!

You know us as the Social Development Commission. But did you know that we are part of a national network called community action agencies? In fact, as the community action agency for Milwaukee County, we are the largest in the state.

What is a community action agency?

In a nutshell, it means per stat and federal law, we are tasked with helping - even advocating for - Milwaukee County residents living in poverty.

We are different. We are not bureaucrats sitting on the outside looking in. One-third of our governing board members represent the voices of low-income residents of Milwaukee County. Community action agencies were created to give people in poverty influence over policies and resources impacting their lives. We amplify their voice as we work together to solve poverty-related issues on our community.
