Empowering Milwaukee County residents with the resources to move beyond poverty for 60 years!
Since 1963, the Social Development Commission (SDC) has served as a planner, coordinator, and provider of human service programs for low-income individuals and families in Milwaukee County. SDC was established in 1963 as an intergovernmental commission under Wisconsin State Statute 66.0125. In 1964, the SDC became the only Community Action Agency for Milwaukee County. read more …
We celebrated our 60th Anniversary with an Annual Staff meeting where staff received awards for outstanding performance, and management unrolled our strategic plans for 2023 – 2026.
During the 60 years of existence, SDC has supported thousands of families and individuals through social services, skills development, business development, and supporting partner activities. Our community awareness and engagement strategy has helped us meet our communities’ needs even during such emergencies as the COVID-19 pandemic.
