A Message from Our CEO
At the Social Development Commission (SDC), we have one goal – to empower people with the resources to move beyond poverty. Poverty isn’t a life sentence. Circumstances change. People change.
At SDC, we help people help themselves.
We take people – right where they are – and wrap services around them. We’re helping our clients reach their goals. With more than 50 years of service in Milwaukee County, few agencies have touched as many people or can offer our diverse portfolio of services.
Our strategy or how we conduct business is based on several core beliefs:
We believe in strengthening families with a two-generational approach; one that addresses the needs of an individual while also considering the needs of the family. This also includes providing unique services to seniors in the community.
We believe in supporting the dreams of our youth while encouraging their families to be involved in the process.
We believe in supporting Milwaukee County’s economic growth by developing a skilled workforce to reduce labor shortages that are impacting a variety of industries.
We offer GED, competency-based diploma programs and encourage continued education.
Our residential services division is creating economically strong neighborhoods by providing neighborhood improvement, weatherization and financial literacy programs.
We’re building healthy communities by encouraging the expansion of wellness, preventive, primary care and mental health services.
As CEO of the Social Development Commission, I am committed to building partnerships that leverage our community resources. I’m also committed to leading an organization that has the courage to be an advocate for all low-income residents. This means we must have candid and sometimes difficult conversations about policies and other factors contributing to the high-level of poverty in our community.
My early experience living in poverty fuels my desire to help the families we serve. Please, join us in this effort.
