In Loving Memory of Attorney James H. Hall, Jr. πŸ•Š

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a legal luminary, community champion, and dear friend, Attorney James H. Hall, Jr. His profound impact on justice and service to the community will forever be remembered.

Attorney Hall's legacy at the Social Development Commission (SDC) is one of dedication, compassion, and transformative leadership. From his role as legal counsel to his instrumental contributions in expanding our services and establishing the SD Properties and Social Development Foundation, he leaves an indelible mark.

A fierce advocate against discrimination, his wisdom and guidance have touched countless lives, and his spirit will continue to inspire us.

Let us join together in honoring the life of Attorney James H. Hall, Jr., celebrating his legacy, and extending our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. 🌹

SDC's Senior Volunteers know how to party!!! 2023 was a great year of service for our amazing Senior Volunteers, who volunteered over 34,512 hours of service in Milwaukee through our Senior Companions and Foster Grandparents Programs.

With our Senior Companions volunteered over 15,164 hours to more than 64 seniors who were either homebound or needed assistance getting around. And our Foster Grandparents volunteered over 19,348 hours to more than 132 youth who needed additional help with learning. These seniors have been making an impact on Milwaukee helping others find their path of success, and they don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

They ended the year celebrating all their hard work with a holiday party that included karaoke, a Soul Train line, and a gift exchange at the Sherman Phoenix. As you can see through these photos they had a great time.

Hats off to the Senior Volunteers for an awesome 2023. If you know of someone who would like to become a Senior Volunteer please go to our website for more information. Click the link below...

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.
