The SDC was established in 1963 as an intergovernmental Public Commission under Wisconsin State Statute SS66.433.

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.

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.
