Stories of Hope and Kingdom Building
We are highlighting unique ministries because of their impact in meeting community needs and Kingdom building. NCF does not endorse organizations, rather, it is our desire to highlight fruitful, faithful and loving ministries who are serving, especially during times of crisis.
City on a Hill ministry

Social Development Commission (SDC)
The Social Development Commission is a community action agency. They’re tasked with helping – even advocating for – Milwaukee County residents living in poverty. Community action agencies were created to give people in poverty influence over policies and resources impacting their lives. One–third of their governing board members live in poverty. They amplify their voice as we work together to solve poverty-related issues in our community.
- SDC operates more than 20 programs designed to improve the overall quality of life for families experiencing poverty
